Electrify America will invest $2 billion over the next 10 years in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure and education programs in the U.S. $1.2 billion will be invested nationwide (in states other than California), while $800 million will be invested in California, one of the largest ZEV markets in the world. This investment represents the largest of its kind ever made.
Electrify America, based in Reston, Virginia, will implement the National ZEV Investment Plan during the first of four 30-month, $300 million investment cycles, across the country to support increased use of Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) technology and to show more Americans that going electric is possible today.
In its first National ZEV investment cycle outside of California, Electrify America will establish a network of 2,500+ non-proprietary electric vehicle chargers at more than 450 station sites.
Approximately 240 charging station sites will be installed or under development outside of California by the end of the first cycle. These sites will be located along high-traffic corridors between metropolitan areas, including multiple cross country routes, and will include between four and ten 150 kW and 320 kW individual DC fast chargers at each location.
300+ community-based charging station sites will be installed outside of California in workplaces, retail, multifamily residential locations and municipal lots and garages in 11 target metropolitan areas. Chargers at these locations will include a mix of Level 2 and/or DC Fast Chargers from 50 to 150+ kW.
Electrify America has also submitted its first California ZEV Investment Plan to the California Air Resources Board. The plan presents the first of four required 30-month, $200 million investments in California to support increased use of ZEV technology. Electrify America will initiate its plan for investment in ZEV charging infrastructure, ZEV education, and its “Green City” initiative upon approval of the Investment Plan by the California Air Resources Board.
Electrify America welcomes comments, recommendations, and proposals on development and implementation of the ZEV Investment Plans, but we caution that some submissions might not fit within the scope or timetable of our initiatives for the first 30-month investment cycle. Other promising ZEV initiatives, such as hydrogen fueling stations or national ZEV car-sharing or ZEV ride-sharing services, will be considered in later investment cycles.
