New Budget to Spread Electric Charging Stations Across the U.S.

by | Jan 4, 2022 | 0 comments |

The Biden Administration is rolling out new plans to implement EV chargers across different communities. A pledge was made for $7.5 billion to go towards the infrastructures of the new EV charging stations and increasing the national network. With the installation of new charging stations, it will help Biden’s goal of having half of all vehicles on the road to be electric by 2030. The administration is also proposing tax credits to businesses that install public chargers at their locations.

The new plan has hopes to broaden where EV charging stations are available. Rural, urban, and disadvantaged communities statistically have a lower number of charging stations available than other types of communities.  By expanding the accessibility of these charging networks, then it will make long-distance traveling easier on drivers. There is a proposed $5 billion budget that will go towards the states to make this possibility happen. These changes and developments in EV networks will help smooth the transition from gas to electric vehicles.

The next step for businesses will be deciding what types of chargers will be installed within their budgets and needs. There are different levels of chargers that affect charging speed and price. The new bill will also address battery manufacturing for the electric vehicles and increasing the budget, so manufacturers are able to create new batteries and implement battery recycling facilities.
