Austin Energy operates the Plug-In EVerywhere™ network of plug-in electric vehicle charging stations located at sites throughout the service territory. Some stations are located at City of Austin facilities. The Plug-In EVerywhere™ network is the first in the U.S. to be completely powered by renewable energy via the GreenChoice® program. The initial network of 113 stations successfully fulfills 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. Austin Energy is now working with its customers to connect privately-owned stations at workplaces, multi-family residences, and retail outlets to the Plug-In Everywhere™ network. The public-access charging stations provide both Level 1 (110 volts) and Level 2 (220/240 volts) charging capability and are geographically distributed throughout Austin. They are available for use by anyone with a plug-in electric vehicle. Austin Energy offers a $25 six-month subscription membership for unlimited charging at any public-access network location. Or, credit cards can be used for $2 per hour of plugging in.
