    DFW AIRPORT, Texas - Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport today unveiled two new electric vehicle (EV) charging ports which are available for free to customers who park using the DFW Airport Valet service.

    The addition of an electric vehicle charging station marks a new milestone in the Airport's dedication to sustainability by supporting customers who own electric cars.

    "We are proud to continue our work on green initiatives by announcing these electric vehicle charging ports today," said Jeff Fegan, CEO of DFW International Airport. "While there is not a huge demand for this service so far, we are pleased to be at the forefront of this emerging technology and we are also pleased to support those customers who, like DFW, are making choices that keep our air cleaner."

    The charging ports work on most typically available electric vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf. The new electric car chargers are able to fully charge a typical electric vehicle in about 3 to 4 hours. A standard 110-volt electrical outlet would require 10 to 15 hours to fully charge an electric car.
