EV charging stations
Electric vehicles are becoming increasingly popular due to a number of advantages for consumers, including convenience, cost savings and environmental benefits. On average, it costs about half as much to drive an EV, compared to a similar vehicle that runs on gasoline. EVs also produce zero direct emissions, which improves air quality, enhances public health and reduces environmental impact.
KPUB added the first electric vehicle charging station in the Hill Country region in 2012, which is located inside of the Kerrville Downtown Parking Garage.
As more electric vehicles come onto the market, KPUB’s staff is actively planning how to incorporate customers’ charging needs into our community electricity infrastructure. KPUB has expanded more of them within our community, including the fast charge level 2 station recently installed in the parking lot of the Kerrville Convention & Visitors’ Bureau (CVB). The latest one at Schreiner University marks the fourth one that we have added in the Kerrville area since 2012.
Our staff continues to look at prospective community spaces for potential charging stations to add for the convenience of the public. KPUB’s current community EV charging station locations include:
– Kerrville Downtown Parking Garage (level 2)
– Kerrville Convention & Visitors’ Bureau (level 3)
– Peterson Health (level 2)
– Schreiner University (level 2)
