Google adds electric vehicle charging stations to mapping service

How does it work? A user simply has to go to Google and type: "ev charging station near [location]," and voila!It pulls up all of the locations within a large radius.

So the next time your EV needs to power up, as with so many other questions that pop up in life, "Google it."

Teaming up with the U.S. government’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Google is pulling the listings from the GeoEVSE Forum.
