SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. -- Cuesta College is kicking off the new year with a new addition to its campus.
Electric vehicle charging stations have been installed for the spring semester at Cuesta College.
This is part of Cuesta College's initiative to promote sustainability.
PG&E funded the project with the help of the company's EV charge network.
That is a three-year program to offer electric vehicle charging stations at select locations.
Cuesta College also received $125,000 in grants from the Air Pollution Control District to support the purchase and installation of the charging stations.
There are 24 charging stations on the San Luis Obispo Campus and 16 at the North County Campus.
The charge for use is $1.50 per hour for the first four hours and $2.50 per hour after that.
Currently, there are almost 8,000 students enrolled in courses at Cuesta College for the Spring 2020 semester.
