Some EV charging providers have been innovating their charging stations with better visibility and a better charging experience.

Nearby there is also a café and supermarket. Company Electrify America has visibility built when they install their stations. Charging areas can be seen by their bright neon lighting when travelers are looking for a place to stop and recharge.
