El Paso grows electric vehicle charging stations fleet
Residents in El Paso will now have locations to re-charge their vehicles.
The city announced the official commissioning of the electric vehicle charging stations. These stations are located in various areas across the city including several Sun Metro terminals and the Airport.
The City of El Paso, in partnership with the University of Texas at El Paso, El Paso Community College, and the Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP), used a $256,000 state grant from the Texas State Energy Conservation Office’s Transportation Efficiency Program to install 32 electric vehicle charging stations throughout the city. UTEP has also used additional funding to install various other stations throughout the UTEP campus.

“We realize that the real key to encouraging electric vehicle use in this community is to provide the infrastructure so drivers are not stranded without power,” said Marty Howell, Director of Economic Development and Sustainability for the City of El Paso. “That’s exactly why the City of El Paso, along with its partners, has committed to providing an increasing number of electric vehicle charging stations throughout the city.”
