Take a survey to help develop the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Plan

June 23, 2022

The Infra­struc­ture Invest­ment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was signed into law in 2021 and includ­ed a $5 bil­lion pro­gram to pro­vide fund­ing to indi­vid­ual states look­ing to devel­op elec­tric vehi­cle fast-charg­ing infra­struc­ture and estab­lish net­works of charg­ing sta­tions across the Unit­ed States. This pro­gram, known as the Nation­al Elec­tric Vehi­cle Infra­struc­ture (NEVI) For­mu­la Pro­gram, is expect­ed to pro­vide $57 mil­lion to Col­orado over the next five years to install EV fast charg­ing infra­struc­ture across fuel cor­ri­dors in the state.

This fund­ing will pro­vide more access to charg­ing and increase the capa­bil­i­ty and fea­si­bil­i­ty of own­ing and trav­el­ing in an elec­tric vehi­cle in Col­orado and across the coun­try. It will also bring charg­ing to more rur­al and dis­pro­por­tion­ate­ly impact­ed communities.

Col­orado needs to sub­mit a Statewide EV Infra­struc­ture Plan by August 1, 2022 to be approved by the fed­er­al Joint Office of Ener­gy and Trans­porta­tion. How­ev­er, pubic engage­ment with a vari­ety of stake­hold­ers is key to devel­op­ing an effec­tive and equi­table plan for Col­orado, so they are look­ing for some feedback!

You can help ensure Col­orado makes the best plan for its res­i­dents by tak­ing this short sur­vey. This sur­vey will be used to inform deci­sions regard­ing place­ment and pri­or­i­ties of EV fast charg­ing sta­tions across the state. The sur­vey ends on July 8, 2022, so be sure to par­tic­i­pate before the win­dow closes.

CDOT will be host­ing an online pub­lic meet­ing in July 2022 to dis­cuss the key ele­ments of the plan, and you can pro­vide addi­tion­al feed­back then. Vis­it the NEVI web­site to learn more about the project and stay updat­ed on devel­op­ment and stake­hold­er oppor­tu­ni­ties. You can also sub­scribe to their mail­ing list to receive updates.

Be a part of the move­ment to elec­tri­fy trans­porta­tion and cre­ate clean­er air in Col­orado today by tak­ing the sur­vey today!
