J1772 don't talk to each other or share the circuit as a as I'm aware.
Only tesla does that and I think they work in pairs.
Then you have 3 or 4 different DC fast chargers at the moment.

They are not going to pay to install DC fast chargers unless it's to do for profit charging. I occasionally see them used and they still run $8,000 to $10,000 each.
I don't know how much they are new.

Just put in some J1772 like everyone else.
Our nation electric code has guidelines for installing evse circuits.
In the US large numbers of public charging stations grouped together normally use 208v.
Then the chargers can be limited to anything from 6 amps all the way to 24 amps for a normal affordable j1772 charge setup.
