CHEYENNE – The Wyoming Department of Transportation will get nearly $24 million within the next five years to build infrastructure for electric vehicles, especially EV charging stations, the agency has announced.
Funding for the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure, or NEVI, program comes from the Federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Also known as the bipartisan infrastructure law. It was signed by President Joe Biden in November.
WYDOT was allocated $3.9 million this year for EV infrastructure and expects $5 million each year for the next four years, totaling $23.96 million, the agency said in a Tuesday news release.
