Vehicles that use electric power cause almost no pollution and are considered the transportation of the future. They use electric power to charge the batteries that provide it the motive power and this charging is facilitated by EV charging stations.

These stations have equipment that connect the vehicle requiring charging to a source of electricity. You can find these charging stations at parking locations in municipalities that are serviced by electricity utility companies. Some private companies have also set up such conveniences at shopping centers. They require to have special connectors that must confirm to connector standards and be compatible with the devices in the electric vehicles that allow for such charging.

Charging, at present, can take a fair bit of time, and charges for the service are often on a hourly basis. It is also possible to create similar charging facilities at homes.
