June 9, 2022 – In keeping with President Biden’s commitment to jumpstart the construction of a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030, the U.S. DOT’s Federal Highway Administration announced rules on proposed minimum standards and requirements.
“To support the transition to electric vehicles, we must build a national charging network that makes finding a charge as easy as filling up at a gas station”. said U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “These new ground rules will help create a network of EV chargers across the country that are convenient, affordable, reliable and accessible for all Americans.”
No matter what kind of EV a user drives, what state they charge in, or what charging company they plug into, the minimum standards will ensure a unified network of chargers with similar payment systems, pricing information, charging speeds, and more.
