The electric vehicle charging stations will be absolutely free of charge for customers at both IAH and HOU.
Dozens of electric vehicle charging stations are now available to customers at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH), as the City of Houston's green initiative takes another major step forward.

Twenty-four charging stations are now up and running at Bush Airport, with the power available to drivers at absolutely no charge.

"This is a major step forward in our collective efforts to make Houston a greener city," says Houston Mayor Annise Parker. "Fifty-million passengers use our two commercial airports on an annual basis and this program will present many of them with a tremendous opportunity to utilize their electric vehicles." 

"We've taken a number of steps in recent years in an effort to reduce the environmental impact of our airport facilities," says Houston Aviation Director Mario Diaz. "Hybrid vehicles, solar power utilization and energy efficient lighting are just a few of the steps that we’ve already taken and I’m extremely proud to add electric vehicle accommodation to that list.”

The City of Houston has already made great progress in making charging stations readily available to owners of electric cars, installing more than 200 such stations at various locations across the city. The Houston Airports project is largely the result of a federal grant from the Department of Energy totaling almost $240,000.

The 24 charging stations will be placed at various sites in parking facilities located across IAH (number of stations are in parenthesis):
