The state of Texas is planning to add EV stations to support 1 million electric vehicles. The Texas DOT’s 5-year plan is that every 50 miles, along non-business routes, there will be a charger. The draft plan declares the chargers will be powered at 150kW and will bring most EVs from 10% to 80% charge in approximately 30 minutes.

The project will be funded by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which will allocate $408 million to Texas. The amount of EVs in Texas has tripled since 2020 and continues to grow. They’ll need the chargers.
