The City of Mesquite is offering free electric vehicle charging in two locations for the next year.
The City received a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) as part of the Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement program. The grant covered the cost of the purchase and installation of three dual-port Level II Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers.
The grant also will provide free charging to the public through August 2024. After that time, the City will charge a fee to residents to use the EV chargers.
“EV ownership is on the rise, but there is a need for more public charging stations,” said City Manager Cliff Keheley. “We are excited to offer this technology to our residents and provide services to a growing community of EV drivers.”
EV charging stations locations:
- Mesquite Municipal Center, 1515 N. Galloway Ave. – Two EV chargers with the capacity to charge four vehicles
- Mesquite City Hall, 757 N. Galloway Ave. – One EV charger with the capacity to charge two vehicles
