Established by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) formula program funding will provide $5 billion over five years for states to deploy high speed DC fast electric vehicle (EV) chargers along highway corridors. This buildout of EV chargers is critical for increasing the number of EVs on the road in Utah and for ensuring that all Americans benefit from electrified transportation. Utah is expected to receive $36 million during five year program to build out the state's EV charging network. Per federal requirements, charging stations built with NEVI funding must be located within one mile of a federally designated Alternative Fuel Corridors (AFC) and at a maximum of every 50 miles along the corridor.
Utah was one of the first states to submit and receive funding for its NEVI plan. You can view the approved plan here
The Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) will be working with partners and stakeholders to implement the state’s NEVI Plan. UDOT encourages applicants to prioritize installing charging infrastructure in charging gaps close to amenities, and particularly in disproportionately impacted (DI) communities, where feasible. As such, this partnering list is created for potential applicants, host communities, and other interested stakeholders to indicate their interest in installing a charger(s) in their communities and for charging providers to explore potential partnerships.
