Eastern Washington University has installed four new PowerPost electric vehicle charging units from Telefonix at its campus in Cheney, outside Spokane.

‘We are serious about our commitment to sustainability,’ said EWU president Mary Cullinan.

Two of the Level 2 chargers are located in front of EWU’s Computing and Engineering Building and another two are located outside the campus Visitor Center.

“The installation of these charging stations is part of Eastern’s long-term plan to cut greenhouse gas emissions,” university president Mary Cullinan said in a release.

PowerPost’s new eGauge

“We are serious about our commitment to sustainability and believe PowerPost EVSE furthers our commitment to preserving the earth,” she said.

The chargers for EWU are the first PowerPost EV units installed with an eGauge system, an electrical power meter that will solely monitor EV Charger usage. “The eGauge system is installed directly to the circuit to track total energy consumption, allowing EWU to research the energy efficiency of PowerPost EVSE, without monthly networking fees or maintenance contracts,” the company says.

‘Energy Efficiency and Low Cost Per Use’

“PowerPost EVSE is the perfect charger for installations where cars are parked for two hours or more, like a university,” Telefonix business development manager Bill Williams, says in the EWU announcement.


“The energy efficiency and low cost per use keeps money in the university’s pocket so they can spend it on what truly matters- providing quality education,” he said.
