DOT Releases Resources for Rural Electric Vehicle Development

Part of promotion to build nationwide network of vehicle chargers.

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law provides $7.5 billion for the creation of a nationwide electric vehicle charging station network. This week, the Department of Transportation released a free toolkit for rural areas to use, providing crucial information on how best to plan charging stations and tips for procuring federal funding. They will also be holding workshops on how best to use the toolkit in the coming months.

“Drivers in rural areas often have the longest commutes and spend the most money on gas, which means big benefits from having access to electric cars,” said Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The investments in the President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for a national EV charging network are an important step toward ensuring that EVs aren’t a luxury item and that everyone in America can benefit from clean transportation.” 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Buttigieg as he oversees disbursement of electric vehicle tool kits for charging station projects.
  • For the president and his administration as they pursue electric vehicle support nationwide.
