According to the new National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) report about the EV charging infrastructure in the U.S., the strong growth continued in Q1 2020.
The number of public charging points (AC and DC) increased during the first three months by 5,627 or 7.6% compared to the end of 2019, to 79,465. That’s actually more than 60 per day.
The expansion of public DC fast chargers is even quicker – by 10.6% to 13,591, although NREL notes that roughly half of those stalls are accessible only to Tesla vehicles (Tesla Supercharging network). Additionally, there are nearly 14,000 private EVSE (such as charging for transit fleets or employees only) – 3.2% more than as of the end of 2019. At the end of Q1, the total of public and private stations was close to 93,500.
