The Ultimate Guide to Electric Car Charging Networks

The Ultimate Guide to Electric Car Charging Networks

In Illinois they main company is ChargePoint. I have been driving EVs for just over a year. I am amazed how many ChargePoint chargers are broken. Most places have 2 chargers and so far I have never seen a case where both are actually working. Several charger have been broken for at least a year (as long as I owned an EV) even after reporting them several times as broken. Early in my EV driving another ChargePoint charger almost left me stranded (the handle was broken and it took me 15 minutes to get to disconnect from my car without it giving me any charge). I only just made it home but I sold my Leaf the next week because it is clear that if you live in a ChargePoint area a pure EV is not an option. I now drive a Volt and am no longer affected by the crumbling Chargepoint infrastructure. I am wondering if other people have better experiences with their charging companies?
