All 50 states get green light to build EV charging stations covering 75,000 miles of highways

National Alternative Fuels Corridors: “The U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) designates a national network of plug-in electric vehicle (EV) charging and hydrogen, propane, and natural gas fueling infrastructure along national highway system corridors. To designate these Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFC), FHWA solicits nominations from state and local officials and works with other federal officials and industry stakeholders…For more information, see the FHWA Alternative Fuel Corridors website. (Reference Public Law 117-58, Public Law 114-94, and 23 U.S. Code 151).”

Alternative Fuel Corridors – “The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL), was enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), (Public Law 117-58) on November 15, 2021. The BIL makes the most transformative investment in EV charging in United States (U.S.) history that will put us on a path to a nationwide network of 500,000 EV chargers that ensures a convenient, reliable, affordable, and equitable charging experience for all users.  This national network will:

  • Accelerate equitable adoption of EVs, including for those who cannot reliably charge at home.
  • Reduce transportation-related greenhouse gas emissions and help put the U.S. on a path to net-zero emissions by no later than 2050.
  • Position U.S. industries to lead global transportation electrification efforts and help create family-sustaining union jobs that cannot be outsourced…”
