About EV Charging Networks
A growing number of companies operate public electric vehicle charging networks. These are the businesses that own and operate the infrastructure you see on streets, highways, shopping centers, parking lots, workplaces, hotels, and other locations. They also provide software that lets you find and use charging stations and manage your EV ownership experience.
Many of these companies partner with each other to offer greater coverage and more convenience for EV drivers. In addition, some EV charging network providers are standalone, while others are part of larger networks.
ChargePoint is the largest EV charging network in the United States, with more than 50,000 charging ports at nearly 14,000 sites. It offers a variety of AC and DC plugs to support a broad range of EV models, including fast charging options. Its app allows EV owners to search for available charging spots, find their location, and check pricing information.
Electrify America is another major network, offering DC fast charging at speeds up to 350 kW. The network partners with EV manufacturers, such as Ford, which offers free access to the Electrify America charging network for every Mustang Mach-E owner.
NYC DOT is working to increase the city-operated level of its EV charging network, and is investing in new locations and technology. Having enough publicly available EV charging will be vital to enabling the city to meet its climate goals, and we are excited to continue to grow our network of public EV chargers.
