AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Austin Energy has announced locations for
more than 100 plug-in charging stations for electric vehicles.
Austin is one of nine metro regions nationwide to take part in
the program using federal stimulus funds. The U.S. Department of
Energy says Texas, as of this spring, already had dozens of
charging stations in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth,
Houston and some suburbs.
The updated list of 103 Austin plug-in charging stations,
announced Wednesday, includes sites at restaurants, hotels, medical
facilities, schools, retail stores and libraries.
Austin Energy offers a $25 six-month subscription swipe card for
unlimited charging. An alternative method of payment is using a
credit card for $2 per hour of charging.
