City of McKinney to Get Electric Vehicle Charging Stations from TXU Energy

The City of McKinney will receive rebates from TXU Energy to install four electric vehicle (EV) charging stations and to convert several city vehicles to electric hybrid vehicles under the TXU Energy EV Accelerator ProgramSM.

TXU Energy’s EV Accelerator ProgramSM helps customers like the City of McKinney ‘jump-start’ their adoption of EVs and associated charging stations. The city’s charging stations, slated to be fully operational in the first quarter of 2011, will be located in the McKinney Senior Recreation Center, the Roy and Helen Hall Library located downtown, and the office buildings for the Development Services and Public Works departments.

The City of McKinney is also working with TXU Energy to convert three existing city vehicles, Toyota Prius hybrids, into plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.
