Additional electric chargers being installed on USC campus

USC students and employees with electric vehicles will soon have more spaces to plug in on campus after a new installation of electric vehicle charging stations in the Downey Parking Structure, which previously had just two chargers.

Associate Director of USC Transportation David Donovan said the project is not yet completed.

“Over the summer, USC Transportation has added nine charging ports in the Downey structure,” said Donovan, “For the first time ever, there are dedicated EV parking spaces [there].”

Previously, Downey had minimal electrical capabilities and only had two ports, he said.

According to Donovan, two projects are ongoing this summer, Ginsburg Hall adjacent to Downey Parking Structure and the United University Church building next to the JEP House. The building was purchased and will be converted into a new facility with electric vehicle chargers.
