Electric Vehicle Charging Stations
Five of the University Central’s stations were donated by Schneider Electric and Plant Operations has installed them in the following garages:
• Wesley Place Garage (double charger): Spaces 52 and 53
• 25th Avenue Garage (double charger): Spaces 325 and 326
• Terrace Place Garage (single charger): Space 63
The Smart Modal Area Recharge Terminal, or SMART station, located in Lot 5B at the corner of 21st Avenue and Broadway, can accommodate 10 vehicles. The SMART station is a joint project of Vanderbilt, the Tennessee Valley Authority and the Electric Power Research Institute to collect data on the operation of a charging station as well as the integration of the station into the operation of a “smart” power grid. This data will inform the further development of Tennessee’s electric vehicle infrastructure.
Rates will be the same as the regular paid parking rates: $1 per ½ hour or a $10 daily maximum. These fees cover the cost of parking and there is no additional charge for electricity use for the University Central.
