An electric vehicle (EV) station is also known as an EV charger, EV supply equipment, or EV charging station for electric vehicles to “refuel”. EV stations consist of a piece of equipment that supplies electric power through a plug-in device to charge your electric vehicle.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the United States alone has about 43,000 public EV charging stations and around 120,000 charging ports. The majority of these are Level 2 chargers.
Additionally, there are over 300 EV charging companies across the globe. North America is home to one third of them.
Nevertheless, electric vehicles and EV charging stations are still a relatively new idea to most households. As word continues to spread in coming years, you can expect to see a major increase in EV charging stations.
Colorado, Utah, the Pacific Northwest, and the Northeast have expanded their number of charging stations on a per-capita basis due to new EV-supportive policies.
