Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plans Approved for all 50 States, DC and Puerto Rico
On September 27, 2022, only a couple weeks after the initial wave of approvals, the Biden-Harris Administration announced it has approved the country’s remaining Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plans ahead of schedule. With this official go ahead, states can now begin tapping into the $5 billion of NEVI funding that’s available over five years. This is a historic step toward meeting the country’s transportation electrification and climate change goals.
According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, these approved funds can be used for a variety of EV charging projects, including:
- Upgrade of existing and construction of new EV charging infrastructure
- Operation and maintenance costs of these charging stations
- Installation of on-site electrical service equipment
- Community and stakeholder engagement
- Workforce development activities
- EV charging station signage
- Data sharing activities
- Related mapping analysis and activities
In an official press release issued by the USDOT, U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said “America led the original automotive revolution in the last century, and today, thanks to the historic resources in the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, we’re poised to lead in the 21st century with electric vehicles.”
Each state’s submitted plan and newly updated approved status can be viewed here.
