Blaming Utility Regulators for Lack of Charging

What’s happening? Those criticizing regulators for a lack of EV charging infrastructure note that these regulators should follow the gas station model for EV chargers. Others say the gas station model doesn’t work for EVs because 85% of EVs charge at home.

Why is this important? Gas stations are slow to adopt chargers because margins are slim and it is expensive.

How will this be important? It is thought federal funding will have to step in and cover areas that aren’t covered by partnerships that emerge for charging station toll outs.
