The Fort Worth City Council voted to enter into an agreement with Revitalize Charging Solutions Inc. (RCS), for a new charging station to be located at the Guinn School Complex Located at 1150 S. Freeway.

This will be an extended pilot program with an initial term of 12 months. RCS will provide a Level II (240 VAC) electric vehicle charging station for public use and will cover the installation and ongoing maintenance of the equipment.

RCS is a startup environmental company based in Fort Worth. They have designed and built an interactive charger that is used to keep the battery of an electric vehicle (EV) charged.

Despite the expected increased usage of EVs, there are relatively few charging stations in Fort Worth to address consumer concerns that a battery could run out of charge and strand a driver far from a recharging station.

RCS and the city initiated a pilot program to install a Level II charging station at the City of Fort Worth Facility Management building, 1110 Taylor Street, in October of 2015. The Pilot program ran for six months and the city deemed the results positive with 12 registered users and an average of two charging sessions per day.
