California will get 200 new electric vehicle charging stations. 

Federal regulators have approved a legal settlement between the California Public Utilities Commission and a unit of Princeton, N.J.-based NRG Energy Inc. that will result in more than 200 electric-vehicle charging stations being built around the state, the Chronicle reports.

The settlement stems from lawsuits claiming NRG and other companies overcharged consumers for power in the state.

NRG has agreed to spend $100 million to build the stations, and pay the state $20 million in the settlement.
