How will I be able to find public charging stations?

The Department of Energy (DOE) maintains a database on their website with all known charging stations.  The major automakers are updating their own databases from the DOE website.  Each EV has a map display which shows charging station locations.

In addition, third-party smart phone apps are available which will locate a charging station in your vicinity.  Popular apps are available through ChargePoint, PlugShare, and CarStations.
