What Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan Means for EV Chargers
By William McCoy
Outside the White House with a bipartisan group of senators, President Biden spoke about his upcoming infrastructure plan.
Although the initial bill had been modified from its original proposal it retains significant amounts of spending meant to cut carbon emissions from transportation. Of note is the fact that the spending bill works toward resolving a major barrier to entry for EVs. It earmarks $7.5 billion in resources specifically for creating an EV charging network across America.
“The largest investment in EV infrastructure in history, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework will accomplish the President’s goal of building 500,000 EV chargers,” the White House said. This proposal’s focal points will be installing electric vehicle chargers at highway rest stops, rural areas, and lower-income communities. Current Dealers are working with federal, state, and local officials to make this goal a reality by 2025. Our assessment process gives decision-makers the information they need to create the infrastructure needed for an electric future.
The Federal bipartisan support for EV transportation infrastructure expresses a broad-based plan to transition the auto industry and wean consumers off combustion fuels into battery-powered cars and trucks. For this reason, automakers like General Motors, Ford, and Stellantis are committing billions to expand full battery-powered vehicles.
Current Dealers will continue to work toward increasing the infrastructure for the future of EVs and reducing climate change. Please contact us and let us show you how we can help you achieve your EV charging and solar power goals.
