In an effort to increase the electric vehicle charging stations across the state, Georgia transportation officials recently released a deployment plan which qualifies Georgia for federal assistance.
The Georgia Department of Transportation this week submitted an email to the Federal Joint Office of Energy and Transportation an Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment plan for federal funding.
The law was passed to establish The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program to grant governments of states the money they require to build an interconnected network.
Georgia is expected to get about $135 million from the NEVI formula program, as reported by GDOT in a press release.
"Georgia is rapidly growing" in its electric vehicle market which is demonstrated by a thriving electric vehicle business community.
The plan is now been approved The Joint Office of Energy and Transportation will examine the plan and will respond on or before September 30.
A NEVI grant-funded EV charging stations should be accessible to the public. The areas within the Georgia's Alternative Fuel Corridor must be prioritised for charging stations.
In addition, federal funding demands that the program provide 40% of its total benefits to the rural and marginalized populations.
When you have the Alternative Fuel Corridor network is constructed in accordance with NEVI standards and is certified through the secretary of Transportation.
