USA: South Carolina Reaches Top Ten in Electric Vehicle Readiness Metrics

When people think of electric vehicle readiness, states like California, Texas, and Oregon come to mind.

One state that is quietly surprising the nation is South Carolina.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy’s alternative fuel locator, South Carolina ranks eighth in public charging station locations per capita. South Carolina has 106 locations for its 4.6 million residents. This is close behind California, which places sixth and ahead of Texas, which places fifteenth. Oregon is on top of the list with 258 public locations for its 3.9 million residents.

South Carolina also hosts a unique network. Plug In Carolina is a non-profit coalition that educates the public on electric vehicle benefits. Earlier this year, they secured a grant from the Walmart Foundation that purchases green energy for sixty public charging station locations across the state.

James Poch, Executive Director of Plug In Carolina, sees the network’s monthly activity.
