Charging Infrastructure: Electric Vehicles in the U.S.

Charging infrastructure is a major factor in electric vehicle adoption rates in the United States, notes Envirotech Vehicles.

According to a report by S&P Global, there were approximately 126,500 Level 2 and just under 20,500 Level 3 charging stations in the United States as of December 31, 2022.

S&P Global estimates that by 2030, the U.S. will need 2.13 million Level 2. charging stations and 172,000 Level 3 chargers, an increase of nearly 17 times the number of Level 2 chargers and more than eight times the number of Level 3 chargers.

In an effort to help address this need, in September 2022, the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (NEVI), established and funded by the Jobs and Infrastructure Investment Act, which became law in November.

On October 15, 2021, the program was approved to help states install electric vehicle chargers along interstate highways.

Over the next five years, $5 billion will be distributed to establish electric vehicle charging stations every 50 miles along major corridors.

In addition, the infrastructure bill included $7.5 billion to build a nationwide network of 500,000 chargers by 2030.

Envirotech Vehicles refers that, through a combination of grant and incentive programs for state and local governments and the private sector, it will support the deployment of a mix of chargers in apartment buildings, in public parking lots, throughout communities, and in a robust network on U.S. highways.

Some geographic areas have considerably more charging stations than others, contributing to a more significant use of electric vehicles in those regions.

Envirotech Vehicles is a provider of specially designed zero-emission electric vehicles focused on reducing the total cost of vehicle ownership and helping fleet operators reap the benefits of green technology.

The company serves commercial and last-mile fleets, school districts, public and private transportation service companies, and colleges and universities to meet the growing demand for light and heavy-duty electric vehicles.
