PlugShare is an app for locating charging stations for electric cars and offers a complete database of all charging locations in the United States to more than 400,000 registered users and many others who have downloaded the app, use the website, or access PlugShare data through partner API integrations. This makes traveling for EV-drivers easier and more confident and provides industry stakeholders market intelligence for planning and making critical infrastructure decisions.
