New Chargers Added - Mar. 12th - Mar. 13th, 2013 + Interesting News Bits

Over the last 24 hours - there have been 23 New Public Chargers added to the PlugShare network, plus 15 New Photos, and 4 New home stations being shared. 

Plugshare is now tracking 15,816 Total Stations! (Soon to hit 16,000 Stations Tracked!)

The additions tracked are: 

  • New Public Chargers Added = 23
  • New Restricted Stations added = 1
  • New Photos Added = 15
  • New Home Stations Shared = 4

58 People Checked into Public EV Chargers today, which means that while it was double or triple the last few days, most people are still charging up at home, and just 58 needed a little extra or did not have a home charger! Or they were checking out charging stations before they needed them - to get a feel for the locations! Maybe - with warmer weather - and new EV Buyers - comes more public charging, too! 

The last person counted today - was 'Chris Checked in at Mayer Electric Supply, Marietta, CA'

Special thanks to Brian (Seattle, WA), Dana (Cheshire, CT), David (Mountainville, NY),  and Seth (Cedar Falls, IA), for sharing their Home stations access with us today!
