California Wants More Electric Cars. But Many Public Chargers Don't Work


ABSTRACTED: San Francisco Chronicle

"Concerned about reliability, a retired professor of bioengineering from UC Berkeley, David Rempel, decided to test charging stations around the Bay Area. Rempel...and volunteers...

"...fanned out across the region's nine counties over three weeks in February and March, visiting 181 public charging stations with a total of 657 plug-in kiosks...

"They found 73% of public kiosks in working order. But nearly 23% had inoperable screens, payment failures or broken connector cables. On another 5%, the cables were too short to reach the vehicles' charging inlet."
