ARLINGTON, Texas — Texas Gov. Rick Perry says people should envision electric cars — not just oil and gas — when they think about Texas.
Perry says he's glad Dallas and Houston are getting more charging stations for electric cars, even though they're not part of an extensive network yet. He spoke Friday at an event in Arlington for NRG Energy.
The company's new station in Dallas is the state's first fast-charging station, which can add 30 miles of range to an electric car in as few as 10 minutes. Texas already has dozens of charging stations in Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and some suburbs.
Industry officials say all electric cars can be charged at those slower-charging stations that add power in about four to eight hours.
