The VW Settlement Electrify America Program is requesting input for their next round of $500 million investment cycle. This is the second of four 30-month cycles which will culminate in a total investment of $2 billion over 10 years. This cycle will start in July 2019 and end in December 2021. Submissions can include but are not limited to suggestions for potential electric charger locations, state and local policies designed to increase Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) adoption, and education activities that communicate benefits of ZEVs.
The first cycle which began in 2017 is well underway. In the cycle, which will run through June 2019, Electrify America is working to establish a network that includes non-proprietary electric vehicle chargers (CCS, CHAdeMO and J1772 standards) at over 650 community-based sites and nearly 300 highway sites across the country.
Electrify America says all submissions must be received by March 1 to better ensure consideration in the Cycle 2 investment plans. For more information or to submit a comment/proposal, please visit Electrify America’s website.
