Charger reliability is an even bigger problem than lack of chargers, surveys of EV users increasingly find.
Fast chargers require so much electricity it would take many more solar panels to power one of them.
Experts and industry leaders say the U.S. needs to build hundreds of thousands of EV chargers to assuage range anxiety concerns. But it's far from clear that would work, or that it's even necessary.
Electricity is everywhere, but getting the necessary permits, utility hookups, and other red tape is slowing down our EV infrastructure.
There is no such thing as "the" EV charging network. It's a complicated patchwork of plugs and proprietary software. And unless something changes, it's only going to get worse.
