According to The Guardian, the University of California San Diego will be installing two EV charging stations at one of their engineering buildings on campus.


Located at the Structures and Materials Engineering Building, the first two chargers will network with a total of 21 proposed stations for UCSD that will use a network interface for billing and reservation purposes. Based on the article, it should cost around $3 for your EV to get an 80% charge.

To get the program started, the initial funds were donated from ECOtality through its EV Project fund. The chargers themselves were installed by a local Southern California company, Sullivan Solar Power who has been working with ECOtality to install chargers throughout San Diego, Los Angeles, and Orange County.
