Orange County has recently installed 12 new electric car charging stations for use by the public. These chargers were made possible by the NC Clean Energy Technology Center at NC State University with federal Congestion Mitigation Air Quality funding provided from the NC Department of Transportation.
The new “Level 2” Clipper Creek charging stations are available to the public 24/7. Six stations are located at the Eno River Parking deck accessed from 131 W. Margaret Street or Nash and Kollack Street. Six more stations are available at the Durham Technical Community College Park and Ride lot located at 525 College Park Road in Hillsborough. These 12 stations are part of the same funding program that enabled Orange County to install two chargers last year at the Robert and Pearl Seymour Center at 2551 Homestead Rd and three chargers powered by solar energy at Orange County Public Transportation, 600 NC Highway 86.
Orange County is pleased to offer these chargers to support electric vehicle adoption and to further the county’s climate action goals. The county looks forward to offering more electric vehicle charging opportunities in the future to expand the growing network and to provide greater access to this service in our community.
The charging stations are free of charge, however users are asked to limit their use to a maximum of four hours a day as a courtesy to other users.
