There are more electric stations than any other alternative fuel (10,710 stations). The number of charging units is of particular importance for electric vehicles due to the length of time it takes vehicles to charge compared to other types of fueling stations. While most refueling is completed in a matter of minutes, electric vehicles may occupy a charging unit for hours so it is important to know the total number of available charging units. Data are as of December 31, 2014.
