Range Anxiety? – Not in New Jersey!

There are many options when it comes to charging your electric vehicle.

NJ Public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Locator finds more than 300 Public Charging Locations in New Jersey, with directions, contact information, and charger type(s).

When considering an electric vehicle, consumers fear being stranded if their battery runs out – a term known as “range anxiety”. New Jersey has a robust network of DC Fast Charging Stations spread throughout the state. The main benefit of DC Fast Chargers is that they are able to provide between 60-80 miles of drivable range per 20 minutes of charging time. Knowing that in most places in the state, you are within a 25 mile radius of a DC Fast Charger should alleviate this range anxiety.

NJ Public Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Locator shows the locations of the 79 DC Fast Charging outlets of over 300 locations. Roughly 95% of the state is currently located within a 25-mile radius of a DC Fast Charger. This means that it is likely PEV drivers in New Jersey will reach their destination with no problem!

Multiple Charging Stations

Charging Levels

Level 1: These charging stations provide charging through 120 volt (V) AC dedicated circuit breakers. Based on battery type and vehicle, Level 1 charging adds about 2 to 5 miles of range to a plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) per hour.
Level 2: These charging stations provide charging through 240V or 208V AC dedicated circuits of 20 to 100 amps, depending on the charging station requirements. Based on the battery type, charger configuration, and circuit capacity, Level 2 charging adds about 10 to 20 miles of range to a PEV per hour of charging time.
DC Fast Charging: These charging stations provide charging through a 480V or 208V AC dedicated circuit. DCFC enable rapid charging and is often located along heavy traffic corridors and at public charging locations Based on battery type and vehicle, DCFC can add about 60-80 miles of range to a PEV in 20 minutes of charging time.

DID YOU KNOW

About 44% of New Jersey’s electricity is generated by Nuclear Power Plants, compared to the national average of 19%. This type of electricity-generating plant does not emit Greenhouse Gases OR criteria pollutants (ozone, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, and lead), which means that nearly half of our energy is clean and CARBON FREE! We also use coal for only about 2% of our energy, compared to the national average of 33%! This makes the New Jersey electricity grid very clean and well-suited for charging electric vehicles. Because our grid is so clean, charging an electric vehicle in New Jersey produces significantly less harmful emissions than charging in other areas of the country AND emits less harmful emissions than driving an internal combustion engine vehicle.
