About

Range anxiety is the main concern within EV drivers and one of the principal factors that people have in mind when buying an EV. Offering a charging points' map is not enough to mitigate this feeling since in many cases charging points are out of order or a special card is needed to charge. Moreover, in many countries the public charging points' network is very limited and is concentrated in the main cities, leaving towns and villages without charging points. Place to Plug offers a platform to solve this problem, connecting EV drivers with hosts offering a socket to charge the electric car.
