Last week, San Diego Gas & Electric said that it filed proposals with the California Public Utilities Commission to install tens of thousands of electrical vehicle charging stations.

Though much of the news around EV charging station installation focuses on utilities, businesses and public venues will be impacted as well. The proposals include installation of as many as 45 charging ports at San Diego International Airport, charging stations in the Port of San Diego and six businesses business with delivery fleets.

The Smithville Herald reports that the Kansas City Aviation Department and Kansas City Power & Light are installing 27 two-plug EV charging stations in the long-term parking lot at the Kansas City International Airport. The story says that the Kansas City Clean Charge Network offers more than 1,000 public charging stations. This, the press release says, is the higher per capita number of any city in the United States. The network also claims to be second in the nation in year-over-year charging station growth.

Not all EV charging projects or on such a grand scale. For instance, The Walnut Creek Library, in the California town of the same name, has five level two chargers. The San Francisco Bay area city now has 35 EV charging stations, according to Patch.
