Electric vehicle charging hub coming to Allen

ALLEN, Texas - A new charging hub for electric vehicles will be coming to Watters Creek Village in Allen.

San Marcos-based XCharge North America announced the plans for a Battery Storage EV Charging Superhub on Monday.

The hub will have more than 20 stalls with ultra-fast chargers.

The chargers take approximately 20 minutes to an hour to add an 80 percent charge to an EV, depending on a series of factors, XCharge says.

The company says it will be the largest non-Tesla DC fast-charging hub in the area.

In a news release, XCharge says the station is "designed to handle seismic weather events" and can return surplus energy to the grid.
