Just read in the local newspaper today (Minneapolis Star Tribune) that even IOWA is getting in on the act! No, I'm not knocking IA. A place called Elk Horn, Iowa will have the highest amt of EV charging stations per capita in the whole US! (But that's because the town is pretty small).
Charging stations are for those who are afraid of driving beyond the range of their EV before getting it home. In time, many cities will come to have EV charging stations.
While I think it could be a long time before EV's really catch on, I'm glad to see mfrs (like Ford) making them, and glad to see that infrastructure is being built (even though most folks will likely charge them at home 99% of the time).
