MN Department of Transportation 2023 EV Charging Survey
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is handling the build out of Electric Vehicle Infrastructure on some roads across the state, using federal funds from the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Minnesota Department of Commerce is aware that Electric Vehicles, and the infrastructure needed to support EV expansion, are topics of high interest to readers of this newsletter; the following items are included here on behalf of MnDOT:
The Minnesota Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Plan identified potential locations for EV chargers along I-94 and I-35. MnDOT will use federal funds from the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program (NEVI) to install EV chargers there first. As thought is given to the next round of charging stations to be funded through the NEVI program, MnDOT is asking for your input through a new survey. This survey also asks questions about the benefits of EV chargers. Your responses will help MnDOT collect the right type of information to evaluate the success of investments in EV chargers.
Take the survey now through May 31, 2023.
Fast Charging Station Interested Partner List
MnDOT is maintaining an Interested Partner List for organizations and businesses interested in applying for NEVI funds to install fast chargers. The Interested Partner List is maintained on the Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan webpage and provides a way for these entities to find each other. Complete this short form to be added to the list. MnDOT will not actively connect organizations to each other; the information submitted will be shared on the EV Infrastructure Plan webpage in an Excel spreadsheet format and will be updated the 15th of each month.
