Below is a list of the 25 states with the most electric vehicle charging stations installed and operational as of April 25, 2013 according to the U.S. Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuels Data Center. This data does not include single-family residential charging stations.

It is interesting to note that the only state without any charging stations is Wyoming – a major fossil fuel producing state. But on the other hand, Texas does have the second largest number of stations.

To this author, probably the most surprising statistic in this list is Tennessee being ranked sixth with 782 charging stations. Though after more thought, I remembered that Nissan is situated in Smyrna, Tennessee and produces the all-electric Leaf there.

Congratulations to all those states that made the Top 25, especially those in the Top 10 – very happy to see Michigan among that elite group and well ahead of any other state in the Great Lakes Region.

  1. California – 4,245
  2. Texas – 1,464
  3. Washington – 1,162
  4. Florida – 880

    If these oil companies were keeping an eye on this, they’d open these as the next generation of convenience stores to overcharge us for a recharge like they do for gas now….

    There not worried about level twos. I do know that when the level threes hit the market in force you will see them jump in with both feet.
