As you might have heard, everything in Texas is big! When we think of Texas, we think of many things: open roads, desert landscapes, Beyoncé. And of course, we also think of oil, since Texas is one of the country’s largest producers of the stuff.
So it might seem a little strange to learn that Houston, Texas is now home to North America’s largest car-charging site. But then, truth is always stranger than fiction.
The site is Houston’s Tranquility Park Garage, which has been tricked out with 28 charging stations from GRIDbot, a manufacturer based in Austin. These stations will charge the city’s existing Prius plug-in hybrids and its new fleet of fully electric vehicles.
