Electric Vehicle Parking Program allows NIH Commuters to ‘Plug In’ and ‘Power Up’ While They Work. 

Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

 NIH has installed 8 electric vehicle charging stations in 3 Multi-Level Parking (MLP) garages on the NIH Bethesda Campus.

This program is made possible by the financial courtesy of the NIH Federal Credit Union (NIHFCU).  The NIH Community appreciates the NIHFCU for its commitment to sustainable commuting and improved air quality.
NIH Employees of electric vehicles can park and charge their vehicles at one of the following locations:
·        ACRF/Bldg. 10 Parking Garage: P2 Level (3 parking spaces) and P3 Level (4 parking spaces)
·        MLP-6: Lower Level (3 parking spaces)
·        MLP-7: Lower Level (3 parking spaces)
The 13 EV spaces are marked with ‘eco’ green color.
