A shout out to the New York Times for its recent assessment of one thing electric cars of all kinds need for the industry to take off: a network of charging stations for that awkward moment when a motorist needs a boost away from home, work, or shopping.

Here's a list of the California-based players mentioned:

  • ECOtality, a San Francisco based charging firm
  • PG&E, the utility, which has installed a free public Level 3 charger along I-80 in Vacaville
  • Coulomb Technologies, a charging infrastructure firm
  • AeroVironment, Nissan’s charging partner in the US
