According to the U S Government Transportation Department, proposals for EV charging stations covering approximately 75,000 miles of roadways in all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico have been approved.
As part of the bipartisan infrastructure agreement earlier this year, the Biden administration gave $5 billion to the states to pay for EV chargers along interstate roads over a five-year period. States have been given access to more than $1.5 billion in funding to develop a network of EV charging stations along designated alternative fuel corridors on the national highway system.
The White House goal is to have a national network of 500,000 EV charging stations by 2030. For this they are investing around $135 billion in their creation and development and recently even enacted tax credits.
The aim of 50% electric vehicle sales by 2030 is part of the administration’s larger pledge to cut emissions in half by 2030 and achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. The U S Government administration has praised EVs as more affordable for Americans than gas-powered cars. The administration has also promised to convert its 600,000-car and truck federal fleet to electric power by 2035.
