PlugShare app, finds EV charging station in neighbors garage
This Facebook for the EV community brings the rapidly-growing network of range-limited drivers even closer together.
Have a home charging station and want to bond with other electric vehicle drivers in need of a quick juice-up? Well this is where PlugShare (awkwardly) steps in. The app asks for a local address or U.S. zip code, and displays a myriad of blue, purple and green sources of electric fuel, both public and private. The fact that the app and its database is purely community driven may create some Craigslist-style casual encounters for recharging. But if you can forget about the creepiness for a quick sec, it's an intuitive and quite useful app for those of crippled by range anxiety.
