Recently is has been announced that Dallas Texas will be getting electric car chargers by sometime next year.  This is in response to the electric cars that are going to be unleashed and sent to the area.  The chargers will be installed in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and in the Houston area as well.  NRG Energy Inc. will be performing the electric car charger installations, a company that powers much of the state of Texas.  Because Dallas and Houston are deregulated utility areas though energy consumers are not limited to having their services provided by NRG as there are numerous electricity companies to choose from.  Electric Rates can help you compare the rates of those companies and help you to find the best deal available.

  • There will be 70 charging stations for electric vehicles installed in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and 50 installed in the Houston area.
