Did you know that Brenham has 4 public electric car charging stations? The City of Brenham installed a 2 vehicle station at 206 W. Vulcan St. in Downtown Brenham May of 2019 and when traveling through from Houston to Austin, it’s a great stop to “recharge” both your car and yourself! Stop in for a coffee or a meal at one of our Downtown restaurants. Spend some time browsing our quaint shops. Or even take in Toubin Park and learn about the history of Brenham. In addition to the Downtown charging station, there are also stations located at the Coach Light Inn, Holiday Inn, and Best Western hotels.
Traveling long distances with an electric car takes some planning. Imagine setting out on a road trip in your electric car, only to learn that your destination doesn’t have a charging station! You need to plan “rest stops” along the way for your car to charge. Since it’s located in Downtown Brenham, it gives travelers a chance to experience everything Downtown has to offer while their car is “juicing” up.
