"ChargePoint is the world’s largest and most open EV charging network with over 18,700 public level 2 and DC fast charging spots. We’re growing rapidly adding over 500 new charging ports every month."
States ChargePoint's website, but we've learned via Pasquale Romano, president and CEO of ChargePoint, that California has over 8,000 of those 18,700 chargers:
"To serve the California EV market, ChargePoint currently operates 8,158 charging stations. This number however, does not meet the needs of the rapidly growing demand for charging stations in our state."
Romano penned a post in the SF Examiner titled "State leading the charge on electric-vehicle growth." He further stated:
"As Californians, we take pride in our state's leadership of an issue of global importance. We've done a great deal, but look forward to a future where charging your car is easier than filling up the tank."
ChargePoint is clearly that fastest-growing network in the charging stations business, so we expect to see 20,000 ChargePoint stations worldwide soon and for California to crack 10,000 in the very near future.
