Where and how to charge
Home recharging of electric vehicles (EVs) is as simple as plugging them into an electric outlet. Electricity fueling costs for electric vehicles are reasonable compared to gasoline, especially if consumers take advantage of off-peak rates. However, electricity costs vary across the U.S. depending on location, type of generation, time of use, and access point (home, business, etc). More public access electric outlets and charging stations will be seen in the coming years at libraries, shopping centers, hospitals, and businesses.
