 Electric Vehicle Charging PILOT Program

  • Location: Pigott Visitor Lot, 3 spots

  • Must have a current SU parking permit to park on campus.

  • Must purchase an electric vehicle “EV” permit from the pay station in the middle of the parking lot next to the emergency phone. This is the method to pay for the electricity for charging. You will need your license plate for the purchase. The machine accepts Visa and Mastercard for payment.

  • May only park in the designated charging spots if you are actively charging your car. For current SU employees and students, when you car is done charging before 3pm weekdays, you will need to move your car out of the Pigott visitor lot to another parking location on campus.

  • You may not unplug the charger from another vehicle to charge your car.

  •  As a way to support this pilot and assist users in creating community among other EV users, a new list serve,, is now available. To join, please e-mail “subscribe EV2SU” to
