The Number of U.S. EV Chargers Has Doubled Since 2021 

There are currently over 183,000 publicly available EV charging ports in the United States — more than double the amount in January 2021 — with over 13,000 added in just the last three months. 

According to, Level 2 plugs are the most common, at 140,387 installations. With the ability to provide 6-19 kW of power, they require a 240-volt connection and around four to 10 hours to fully charge. 

There are 43,166 DC fast chargers that can provide hundreds of kilowatts of power, making charging stops much quicker than Level 2 plugs. The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation lists 232 Level 1 charging locations with a total of 873 plugs. These work on 120-volt connections and provide less than 6 kW of power. 

The most publicly available plugs are of the J1772 variety (130,087 ports), followed by Tesla’s NACS (36,499 ports), CCS (16,925 ports) and CHAdeMO (8,687 ports). 

The number of public EV chargers is expected to rise in the coming years. The Biden administration has pledged billions of dollars to install no fewer than 500,000 EV chargers across the U.S. by 2030 through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program.
