Electric Vehicle charging station installations have been rapidly rising nationwide due to state and federal government incentives recently implemented. In particular, as National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) plans and funding have been approved for all 50 states, the race to install a nationwide network of electric vehicle charging stations has begun.
The United States Department of Energy (DOE) has just released their findings on how many electric vehicle charging stations each state has installed. The data compares how many EV charging stations were in place prior to September 2020 with how many charging stations each state has built since September 2020. The goal of this data analysis is to gauge the speed at which EV infrastructure is being incorporated both state-wide and nationwide.
The home of Maverick Electric Vehicle Services, Massachusetts, has been ranked number one with a 235.3% increase in electric vehicle charging stations across the state since September 2020. Massachusetts had 637 EV charging stations built prior to September 2020 and had an additional 1,499 charging stations installed in the time period since September 2020. Compared to all other 50 states and territories in the United States, Massachusetts had the highest percentage increase, a solid 26.8% ahead of the second ranked state, Michigan. Michigan had a steady 208.5% increase in EV infrastructure installation since September 2020 and is predicted to continue at that pace of growth.
With huge EV charging station installation projects taking off across the country, Maverick EV Services is excited to be located in a state that is leading the way and setting the standard for EV infrastructure. We are excited for what the future holds for Electric Vehicles and are prepared to continue to design and build the EV infrastructure needed to support the shift to electric vehicles nationwide.
