Where Can I Charge An Electric Car In The Northland?
You may not own one today - but statistics say that you will in the future. As electric cars become more prevalent, any initial unfamiliarity is fast becoming a thing of the past.
According to registration information, 2.1% of Americans currently drive an electric vehicle. And while that number may seem small, it represents an almost doubling from the year prior (1.3%) and almost the same result from two years ago (.86%). More impressive is the AAA survey that suggests that 20% of Americans plan to make their next vehicle an electric one.
Perhaps the biggest question most people have in regards to electric vehicles is "where can I charge them"? I'll admit - I have never seen an electric charging station and I wondered if there were any in our area.
Surprisingly - to me at least - there are quite a few places to charge an electric vehicle in the Northland. Duluth is home to 8 charging stations, Superior has 2, the Cloquet/Carlton area has one, Two Harbors offers 2 stations, and there are even a variety of them on the Iron Range.
