El Paso Electric Receives $25,000 in Grants for Installation of Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

EL PASO, TX – The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) has awarded El Paso Electric (EPE) with two $12,500 grants for the installation of 10 public level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. The grants were made possible by the Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program (TxVEMP) at TCEQ. These charging stations will be installed in a variety of optimal, high-traffic locations throughout the central areas of El Paso, Texas and are expected to be available later this year.

“The electrification of transportation is a key initiative at EPE, and this grant propels our commitment to drive economic growth and vibrancy in our region,” said EPE Senior Director of Innovation and Sustainability Jessica Christianson. “We are optimistic that adding more charging infrastructure in our community will help support the adoption of EVs which  can offer cost savings to drivers and environmental  benefits to our region. EPE  will continue to seek out opportunities to provide our customers with energy solutions for electrification.”
