These well exceed the recommendation from the International Energy Administration (IEA)  which specifies one public charging station for every 10 EVs in a region.

New Jersey has the worst station-to-EV ratio at one charging station for every 45.81 EVs, followed by Arizona (one station for 33.41 EVs) and Washington (one station for 31.48 EVs).

  EVSE Ports. In terms of charging ports, there are 116,045 public EVSE ports, including 22,142 DC Fast Chargers, 92,692 Level 2 Chargers and 1,169 Level 1 Chargers.
