Businesses building electric vehicle charging stations say that finding enough electricity is a major — perhaps fatal — problem.

Of the 211 developers surveyed by Xendee, a California-based software company, 75 percent said that electric grid limitations are among the biggest roadblock to building EV charging infrastructure. The total cost of the infrastructure was a problem for 63 percent of the respondents, and permitting delays were cited by 53 percent of those surveyed.

Supply chain issues, financing, fleet-adequate solutions, engineering costs, and inadequate software were the other problems cited in the survey.

Utility Dive reports that some developers were unable to get information from utilities in a timely fashion, and some regions have seen major price spikes increase energy costs above economic levels.

Many of Xendee’s clients, according to Utility Dive, have resorted to installing gas- or diesel- powered generators to run their charging stations.
