Airport Offers Customers a Green Option

Customers operating electric vehicles at El Paso International Airport can get a charge – free of charge.

El Paso International Airport (EPIA) now has a “Green Island” in the center of its short-term parking lot - four Electric Vehicle Charge units are now up and operating and available for use by the travelling public.

There is no charge for the use of the units; however, a customer must have a BLINK account. BLINK cards, which are activated online, are available for pickup and use by EPIA customers at the Airport’s dispatch office.

The City of El Paso received a $256,000 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) grant from the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO), for installation of 32 stations throughout the City, including EPIA, City maintenance facilities, three Sun Metro transit terminals, the University of Texas at El Paso, and County annexes.
