SOUTHEASTERN NORTH CAROLINA (WECT) -

More than 200 public electric vehicle charging stations, including several in the southeastern part of the state, will be installed in North Carolina as part of Duke Energy's EV Charging Infrastructure Project.

The $1 million project pays up to $5,000 toward the cost to purchase and install each station. 

UNCW and Cape Fear Community College have been awarded two stations each. The City of Southport and Brunswick EMC also were awarded two each.

“The robust interest throughout the state is a positive sign that public EV charging will continue to grow in North Carolina,” said David Fountain, Duke Energy’s North Carolina president. “Expanding charging infrastructure is critical for more EV adoption in the future.”

According to Advanced Energy, there are about 5,300 registered plug-in electric vehicles and 700 public charging stations in North Carolina.
