Idaho Transportation Department managers are looking for Idahoans’ suggestions on how they should roll out an initiative that is designed to create a network of electric vehicle charging stations situated along interstates.
Under the National Electric Vehicle Investment, or NEVI, program, Idaho is due to receive about $28 million in federal funding over five years through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which is sometimes called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, that President Joe Biden signed in November 2021. The goal is to create a network of charging stations situated every 50 miles along the interstate.
