Our new electric vehicle charging station is a shining example of the University’s commitment to sustainability.

Located at Cajun Field, it’s the first public electric vehicle charging station in Lafayette, and the only one in Louisiana powered by solar energy.

Power for the electric vehicle charging station is produced less than a half mile away, at the Photovoltaic Applied Research and Testing Laboratory.

UL Lafayette is the only university in the state with a solar farm.

Its 4,500 panels generate 1.1 megawatts, or 20 percent of the electricity required to power southern portions of campus, including Cajun Field.

Our Zero Waste initiative is making strides to minimize the University's environmental impact.

By reducing food waste, recycling electronics, using bottle-refilling water fountains, and increasing recycling, we’re protecting our campus – and our world – and ensuring that future generations can enjoy both as much as we do.
