Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Proposed Rulemaking
The Federal Highway Administration announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on proposed minimum standards and requirements for projects funded under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. This program will provide funding directly to states and not localities. However, these minimum standards and workforce requirements will impact how infrastructure gets deployed in local communities.
This announcement was made during an EV Charging Symposium and can be watched here.
Many thanks to the regional infrastructure leaders that came together to discuss the launch of the Infrastructure Initiative. Infrastructure LA is developing a coordination strategy. Stay tuned for more information.
