Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative and the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort and Spa partnered in June to install two electric vehicle-charging stations at the Bastrop County resort hotel. The co-op’s service area includes major highways connecting Austin, San Antonio and Houston. “Hyatt Regency Lost Pines is an ideal partner for this project and a perfect, logical place for us to install the first electric vehicle charging stations in our service area,” says Mark Rose, Bluebonnet’s general manager. “It’s one of the best resort hotels in the country and a prime destination for conferences, company retreats and meetings, and family vacations.” The charging stations have universal connectors compatible with electric cars made by major manufacturers, including Nissan, Chevrolet, Toyota, Tesla and BMW. Each charging station can accommodate two cars at a time.
