DoE releases charging station and alterative fuel locator mobile app

Fri, 15 Nov 2013

Whether you drive a Tesla Model S, a Nissan Leaf, or a CNG-powered Ford F-150, there is now an app that drivers of all electric and alternative fuels will find useful. The Department of Energy has just released a mobile app version of its Alternative Fueling Statin Locator, available for download at the iTunes store, that will allow users to find public and private electric charging stations and alternative-fuel station all across the nation. The app displays different types of refueling stations, including biodiesel, CNG, electric, ethanol, hydrogen, LNG, and propane.

The app will also display information such as address, phone number, and hours of operation of each location, the payment types accepted, and the types of pumps and charging stations available.

You can browse the nation-wide map manually on the DOE's website displaying all 12,888 publicly-accessible alternative fuel stations in the U.S., (to see which states you should probably reconsider crossing in a pure-electric car), or have the app will find one for you on the go. The app is available free on iTunes, and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
