USA: Even Small Towns See Demand For Electric-Car Charging

Small-town America is all about quaint Main Streets, mom’n’pop stores, and… electric-car charging stations?

While major cities like New York are working to encourage the use of electric cars with public charging stations, some smaller municipalities are seeing demand for them too.

One example is Naperville, Illinois.

A suburb of Chicago with an estimated population of 143,684, Naperville’s sole charging station has proved so popular that the local government now plans to install two more, according to the Naperville Sun (via ChargedEVs).

The station was installed in 2012 and was free to use for one year, so officials could gauge usage. They soon found electric-car owners complaining that they couldn’t get access because of the high demand.
