New Chargers Added - Mar. 14th - Mar. 15th, 2013 + Tesla News

Plugshare is now tracking 15,931 Total Stations!
(Very Soon to hit 16,000 Stations Tracked!)

Over the last 24 hours - there have been 27 New Public Chargers added to the PlugShare network, and 1 Restricted Charger, plus 20 New Photos, and 1 New home stations being shared. New: now links added for Public Locations - for contact information and more.

8 New Stations Showed up in Spartanburg, SC - because I discovered Plug In Carolina website - and last night I added those to the PlugShare Website, as well!

The additions tracked are: 

  • New Public Chargers Added = 27
  • New Restricted Stations added = 1
  • New Photos Added = 20
  • New Home Stations Shared = 1

64  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 64 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 'Robert H. Checked in at City of Eagleville, TN'

Special thanks to John (Wooster, OH), for sharing their Home stations access with us today!
