Austin Energy Announces 100% Green Energy Charging Stations

Austin Energy's recently announced Plug-in EVerywhere Network will be the first charging station network of its kind in the country to be powered completely by renewable energy.

When electric car owners charge their vehicles at any of Austin Energy’s 50 charging stations located at City of Austin municipal sites such as parks and libraries, they receive electricity from 100% clean, renewable energy through Austin Energy’s Green-e certified GreenChoice program. As part of the EVerywhere Network, another 50 GreenChoice-powered charging stations are being added at local businesses and non-profit organizations for public use.

Austin Energy customers can also take advantage of home charging equipment rebate programs that pay up to $1,500 of the installation cost. Subscribing to GreenChoice at home ensures that owners of electric vehicles can drive completely on renewable energy purchases.
