2016 Winners

Congratulations to the winners of the 2016 NJ Charging Challenge: Electrify Your Workplace recognition program!
The awards were presented at the 2016 Governor’s Environmental Excellence Awards ceremony on December 7th, at the New Jersey State Museum in Trenton.  Descriptions and photos for each of our winners are below.


Certificate of Recognition: PSEG
The utility in 2015 installed 30 Level 2 charging stations, bringing to 45 the number of stations installed statewide at PSEG facilities. The 2015 installation included 10 stations in a Newark parking garage, 10 stations at the company’s Training Center in Edison, and 10 stations at its Central Maintenance Facility in Edison. PSEG has also implemented an extensive educational campaign to promote the use of electric vehicles by employees and customers. There has been a feature story in a company magazine, two write-ups in a company blog about the benefits of electric vehicle use, and promotional material sent to employees about installation of charging stations at a hospital in New Brunswick, Middlesex County.

Certificate of Recognition: The College of New Jersey
The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) has five Level 2 charging stations in its commuter student parking garage that have been operational for approximately one year, and are used by both commuting faculty and students. The installation resulted from a unique partnership between the Ewing school and PSEG -- TCNJ committed to using the charging stations for faculty and staff, and PSEG provided the electric vehicle charging equipment for free. TCNJ paid for the equipment installation and is responsible for ongoing maintenance and electricity costs. A ribbon-cutting event to highlight the partnership and promote the use of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations was held in July 2016. Installation of the stations received widespread media coverage, from the campus newspaper to network television news in Philadelphia.
