As electric cars become more common, there will also become a growing need for more EV chargers. Unfortunately, as it stands, EV chargers simply aren’t quite as common or ubiquitous compared to gas stations, but there has been work by companies to try and get more of them out there.
In fact, ChargePoint has recently announced a new $1 billion initiative that will see them bring EV chargers to more places, such as highways and rural areas in which EV chargers simply aren’t very common. This is done in partnership with NATSO, where over the next decade or so, they are hoping to bring EV chargers to more than 4,000 locations to not only make it more convenient for EV owners, but to encourage more drivers to adopt EVs, who might have otherwise have range anxiety.
According to Pasquale Romano, President and CEO, ChargePoint, “ChargePoint is proud to partner with NATSO to significantly expand access to charging along America’s highways while also ensuring that the implementation of charging infrastructure in rural areas accelerates in the years to come.”
The CEO adds, “We are embarking on a major shift in transportation, with electrification poised to fundamentally transform mobility. Collaborations like this are vital for the rapid expansion of charging around the country and will ensure that the United States remains at the forefront of the EV revolution.”
