Dallas Love Field Earns Grant for New EV Charging Stations

Staff Report | DFW Newsflash | November 2021

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality recently awarded Dallas Love Field with a grant that will help advance its long-term goal of “going green.”

Each year, TCEQ selects recipients implementing projects that reduce nitrogen oxides in the environment through the Texas Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Program. Contending in five grant categories, organizations across the state submit applications for projects hoping to receive funding and Dallas Love Field is thrilled to have been selected.

With the help of the Office of Environmental Quality & Sustainability, Dallas Love Field plans to use the $25,000 award to install 10 new Level 2 Dual Port Pedestal EV Charging Stations over the next two years. These, in addition to the current EV charging stations available in all three garages, will continue to encourage the use of zero-emission vehicles and reduce air pollution.

In 2018, DAL received Level Two accreditation from the Airport Carbon Accreditation based on its carbon management procedures and has since been diligently working its way to the next level – Optimization. Through its energy conservation initiatives and partnerships in sustainability efforts, Dallas Love Field hopes to reach the next level of accreditation very soon.
