CALIFORNIA HITS 10,000 SUPER CHARGING STATIONS MILESTONE EARLY
The California Energy Commission on Monday celebrated the state hitting a milestone of 10,000 super charging stations for electric vehicles. The milestone-setting super charging station was installed in Union City and also marked California hitting a state goal for electric vehicle charging stations two years early.
"We're seeing auto makers really step up and provide the vehicles, and now what we need to do is make sure there's charging infrastructure available to be able to meet that need," said Patty Monahan with the California Energy Commission. The commission said California is leading the way when it comes to going electric. Last quarter, one out of every four cars sold in the state was an EV. But critics have noted the EV revolution is still largely missing a key segment of our population, and that is why earlier this month the state opened $38 million to fund public charging stations in low-income areas.
