"As of September 2022, the City of Boston has 924 chargers, 95% of which are Level 2. But across the city, the distribution among neighborhoods has not been even. Most of the city’s 182 charging locations are in Central Boston, Seaport, Fenway and Beacon Hill," reports Paula Moura for WBUR news.
In her piece, "For EVs to take off, Boston needs more equitable placement of chargers," Moura explores the challenges for Boston residents who live outside of denser and more commercial areas and therefore lack access to walkable public EV charging infrastructure.
