Entergy Corp. and Coulomb Technologies are teaming up to fund and donate 16 electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations to college campuses in and around Entergy's four-state service area.
The first two Entergy-funded charging stations, which were manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, were unveiled during a special event at Louisiana State University (LSU). The charging stations were donated to LSU through a $160,000 grant by Entergy's Environmental Initiatives Fund. The LSU charging stations are free to use by all LSU faculty, staff and students.
Entergy is also currently working with other universities in Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas to donate additional EV charging stations throughout the region.
‘Electric vehicles are gaining widespread attention and being embraced as an important technology solution for the nation's energy future,” says Bill Mohl, president and CEO of Entergy Louisiana and Entergy Gulf States Louisiana. “We know that the infrastructure must be in place to support the evolution of the technology, and we hope Entergy's donation of EV chargers to LSU will help start that process for the Southern region.”
