EV Charging Stations Now in Town Square

The City of Southlake is now home to an electric vehicle (EV) charging station in Southlake Town Square.

The charging station is located on the bottom floor of the West parking garage next to the Grand Avenue entrance (east side). Through a partnership with TXU Energy, the City was awarded a ChargePoint charging station for two parking spaces.

The charging station, a Level 2 dual head EV charging station, is a single unit with connectors which allows two vehicles to be charged simultaneously. It charges at a maximum rate of 25 RPH (miles of Range Per Hour), and stations can fully charge some vehicles in less than four hours.

Nearly all cars currently on the market are compatible with the ChargePoint chargers.

Providing electrical charging stations around the City is a Tier 1 project in the Southlake 2030 Mobility Master Plan. The City also plans on providing EV charging stations at The Marq Southlake with the completion of the Phase 2 construction.
