1,800 EV Stations Installed Thanks to Stimulus: Energy Secretary Chu announced this week that funds from Obama’s...

All told, the eight projects will see 13,000 electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles put on the road and over 22,000 charging points in residential, commercial, and public locations by the end of 2013. I recently opined that I’m not sure it is such a good idea to put the charging infrastructure ahead of the demand of electric vehicles themselves …but nobody is listening to me anyways. Next time somebody whines about the lack of infrastructure for charging electric vehicles though, make sure to mention the 22,000+ EV charging stations and the fact that any home with a washer/dryer hookup can have a level 2 charger installed for about $1,000. No charging infrastructure? Think again. This is putting lots of people to work at the same time too.
