EV Chargers Needed In America
Thought this was an interesting stat. However, the article doesn't mention home chargers. Maybe that's being taken into account.
There are only about 140,000 public charging outlets for 3.7 million EVs — a ratio of 26 EVs per charger, according to Alliance for Automotive Innovation. The California Energy Commission says a ratio of one public charging port per seven EVs will be required if Americans want to completely ditch gas-guzzlers.
@seancallahan The last blurb about public charging seems out of place. The California Energy Commission is not focused on charging; their focus is on the electric grid - they are not saying we need 1:7 DCFCs, they are including all public charging locations including level 2 charges and "shared private" charging. The CECs concern is that the grid will be available to accommodate the additional charging required for mass-scale EVs.
You would think The Washington Times could find a more recent picture than 2009? Maybe one that includes the current Fisker iteration.

@ttrinchi Agreed, and every mention of the word “Fisker” was linked to Fisker Coachbuild, like they didn’t even do any homework beyond the press release!
