EV charging in Lincoln is evolving fast, as now two more stations will join five recently set up at Duncan Aviation (we reported) and two at local dealerships. Lincoln Electric System will install the ChargePoint stations at a parking garage this week, which makes Lincoln the city with the most charging points in Nebraska.
