California Set to Distribute $40 Million to Build EV Fast Chargers

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California is set to distribute $40.5 million to build 270 EV fast chargers at 26 sites along highways.

Governor Gavin Newsom announced Thursday that California will receive more than $380 million to develop 6,600 miles of EV corridors which includes four chargers every 50 miles.

In a press release, Governor Newsom said, "This is a direct result of President Biden’s infrastructure law. We’re using this money to deliver for Californians, building EV chargers throughout the state as we continue getting more clean cars onto our roads.”

The press release went on to say, "This complements the more than $10 billion in state funding for zero-emission cars, trucks, buses, and infrastructure through California’s Climate Commitment. And, it follows the Governor’s announcement that California surpassed both its zero-emission truck and vehicle sales goals two years ahead of schedule."
