The Texas government is awarding charging infrastructure provider Universal EV Chargers $3.2 million in grants to install 105 charging stations at 21 locations in the state. The focus is on destination chargers at hospitality establishments or apartment buildings.
Universal EV Chargers does not provide further details on the planned charging infrastructure. According to its website, the manufacturer’s portfolio includes both AC wall boxes and pillars as well as DC chargers. The accompanying press release does not say which models will be used.
In Texas, there are currently a total of 2,139 AC and DC charging stations with 5,100 connections to serve about 150,000 registered electric vehicles. Universal EV Chargers said it also secured grants from Ohio, North Carolina, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware last quarter as part of the US-wide grant programme to build a national network of 500,000 charging stations.
The Texas-based company is a subsidiary of Universal Green Group launched in 2021. Since its founding in 2009, the group has made a name for itself primarily as a solar energy specialist. In addition to the Universal EV Chargers unit, the group’s brand portfolio includes the subsidiaries Universal Solar System and Universal Real Estate.
