Charging on the Road: Finding Stations

There are hundreds of public charging stations in the Chicago metro area. Most of these stations are equipped with Level 2 chargers, and some are equipped with direct-current (DC) fast chargers. How can you find these public charging stations? PlugShare is a free, user-friendly, online and mobile map available that identifies the locations of charging stations across the country and displays in real-time whether they are in use. It also differentiates between regular and “high-power” stations that can charge your car faster, includes Tesla’s “supercharger” network, and even allows individuals to open up their residential chargers for public use.
