Environmentalists are growing excited over the number of charging stations installed across the U.S. One report says there is now one quick charging station for every 16 gas stations in the nation.

An estimated 1,100 new public fast-charging stations were installed in the second half of 2023 which represents a 16% increase, reported Bloomberg which conducted a Bloomberg Green analysis of federal data.

Katherine Garcia who is director of Clean Transportation for All at the Sierra Club called it a “very exciting moment,” adding,  “And I think we’re going to continue seeing this growth trajectory.”
