Two week ago, the White House announced a range of actions intended to stimulate and speed up the production of zero-emission electric vehicles in the U.S. This alternative fuel network plans to include 55 Interstate highways, with 48 of those designated as EV charging corridors. In total, the planned charging stations cover nearly 25,000 miles of road, with the appropriate signage along the corridors indicating where to charge up. EV owners can expect an existing or planned EV charging station within a 50-mile radius of one another.
The Federal Highway Administration has released a list of the locations of the corridors, which ones have been approved for the signage, and the type of fuels each will offer. Along with EVs, the program will accommodate vehicles that run on compressed natural gas, hydrogen, or other fuels.
