Electrify America LLC, based in Reston, Virginia, will invest $2 billion over the next 10 years in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) infrastructure and education programs in the U.S. Over four 30-month cycles, Electrify America will invest $1.2 billion nationwide (in states other than California) and $800 million in California, one of the largest ZEV markets in the world. This investment represents the largest of its kind.
Electrify America’s vision is to establish a premier ZEV charging network that is comprehensive, technically advanced and customer-centric -- to drive ZEV adoption by reducing charging anxiety and increasing convenience. One of Electrify America’s guiding principles is to build a network that is economically sustainable for the long term. Our infrastructure investment, combined with our education and access programs, will enable millions of Americans to discover the benefits of ZEV driving.
Electrify America began implementing its Cycle 1 National Investment Plan in April 2017, while it initiated investment in California soon after the Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan was approved in July 2017.
Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan
Electrify America’s Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan and its Supplement to the Cycle 1 California ZEV Investment Plan were approved unanimously by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) on July 27, 2017. The plan presents Electrify America’s intention to invest $200 million in California to support increased use of ZEV technology. Major investment will be made building ZEV charging infrastructure in metro areas and along highways, creating brand-neutral ZEV education and outreach programs, and launching a “Green City” initiative in Sacramento focused on increasing access to ZEV technology. A summary of the Plan and Supplement are available here.
Cycle 1 National ZEV Investment Plan
Electrify America is currently implementing the first of four investment cycles across the United States, consistent with its Cycle 1 National ZEV Investment Plan. During this first cycle, Electrify America will invest $300 million across the country, excluding California which is covered in the CA ZEV investment plan, to support increased use of Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) technology and to show more Americans that going electric is possible and beneficial today.
In its first National ZEV investment cycle, Electrify America will establish a network of 2,500+ non-proprietary electric vehicle chargers at more than 450 station sites.
ZEV Investment Plan Implementation and Planning
Electrify America welcomes comments, recommendations, and proposals on development and implementation of the ZEV Investment Plans. We received and considered more than 550 submissions during development of the first cycle investment plans. Please submit those ideas below. Some submissions may not fit within the scope or timetable of our initiatives for the first 30-month investment cycle and may thus be considered for future investment cycles.
