AUSTIN, TX -- Austin Energy announced the locations of the 103 plug-in charging stations that compose the Austin Plug-In EVerywhere network for electric vehicles.
The installations fulfill Austin’s commitment to the ChargePoint America program that selected Austin as one of only nine metropolitan regions in the country to participate in the federal stimulus grant-funded program.
The locations of the Level 2 (220/240 volts) charging stations include restaurants, hotels, medical facilities, educational institutions, retail stores, public facilities such as libraries and recreation centers, and more. The locations also are geographically distributed throughout all parts of Austin.

The charging stations are available for use by everyone with an electric vehicle. Austin Energy offers a $25 six-month subscription swipe card for unlimited charging at any network location. Otherwise, a credit card can be used for $2 per hour of charging.
Austin Energy offered rebates of up to $2,500 per charging station to the private, public and non-profit sectors to help defray the costs of installing the free charging stations offered by Austin Energy through the ChargePoint America program. More than 40 community partners responded by a July 2011 deadline indicating their interest in hosting the charging stations at their locations for public use.
