H-E-B, Walmart and Denny’s to host electrical vehicle charging stations

AUSTIN — H-E-B, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Denny’s are among the companies that will host some 103 electric vehicle charging stations in Austin, Texas., allowing customers to plug in while they shop. The stations are part of Utility Austin Energy’s Plug-In EVerywhere network.

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.

“H-E-B is thrilled to be a part of the Plug-In EVerywhere program and continue to lead the way in green practices by helping to provide electric vehicle charging stations in Austin Energy’s Plug-In EVerywhere network,” said Leslie Sweet, H-E-B director of public affairs. “The Plug-in EVerywhere initiative will further extend H-E-B’s commitment to sustainability by providing charging stations in well-lit, safe locations at our stores that are easily accessible for the community's use.”
