AFDC: There Are Now Nearly 20,000 Charging Points in the US
As 2013 comes to a close, we thought it worthwhile to examine how many charging stations/points exist today in the US.
While we understand that some sites such as Recargo or Plugshare list totals that disagree with the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC), we rather go with the AFDC’s figures simply because its a government run site and it’s updated by a process that involves the AFDC confirming that the stations still exist and are operational.
With that stated, we come to a number: 19,472.
That’s how many charging outlets (non residential) were in the US as of December 25, 2013.
It’s worth noting that the AFDC counts each individual outlet in tallying this figure.
California is of course home to more charging points than any other state with 5,176 there.
