First of all, congratulations on your new EV! But we understand—when you’re used to the ubiquity of gas stations, looking for chargers can feel stressful. Luckily, you have lots of options for fueling up while you’re out and about. Here are some of the places that are likely to get you the charge you need.
- Public garages, whether attached to retailers, residential buildings, or government buildings, often have designated EV spaces. Look for “EV Only,” or charger icons.
- Dealerships are great places to look for chargers as well. If you want to sell an EV, you have to be able to charge it!
- Many regular old street corners have chargers too, particularly if you live in an urban area. As fleets electrify, cities are working on accommodating the increasing number of EV drivers.
- There’s an app for that. Try searching apps like ChargePoint, PlugShare, or EVGo to determine where the nearest chargers are to you.
