There are now more than 50,990 public and private plug-in electric vehicle charging sites located throughout the US — up from 34,151 in 2015 — according to the newly released Electric Vehicle Charging Association’s 2017 State of the Charge report.
The new report re-evaluates the state of the plug-in electric vehicle charging network in the US, two years after the previous State of the Charge report from the Electric Vehicle Charging Association (EVCA) was released. While the focus of the report and analysis is on California (as the acronym implies), data relating to the broader market is included as well.
“The EV and EV charging industries have made impressive advancements in just two years since we first published the ‘State of the Charge,’” stated EVCA President Terry O’Day. “Unsurprisingly, California remains the national leader in facilitating the transition to a clean transportation system, and we look forward to seeing how it and the rest of the country continue to progress in the years to come.”
