Where to Charge Your Electric Vehicle on the Outer Banks

The Outer Banks is electric vehicle friendly

Electric vehicles are beginning to take over the roads in many areas, and they are becoming a popular way to travel to the Outer Banks. As the growth of electric vehicles continues, we are seeing more EV charging stations pop up on the OBX, and we have quite a few rental homes that offer charging options onsite. If you’re wondering if the Outer Banks is a good destination to drive to in your electric vehicle, the answer is YES!

Public EV Charging Stations

You can find public electric vehicle charging stations from Corolla to Nags Head, so wherever you are on the OBX, you’ll be able to charge your Tesla or other electric vehicle for your next adventure.
