Expansion and enhancement of Oklahoma's electric vehicle charging infrastructure statewide.
The bipartisan infrastructure bill created a new funding program to assist states with expansion and enhancement of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
The National Electric Vehicle Formula Program (NEVI) provides Oklahoma more than $66 million in federal funding for EV charging infrastructure over the next five years. Oklahoma will have to match the federal funds with state, local and/or private funding.
Oklahoma has successfully nominated several highway and turnpike corridors as Alternative Fuel Corridors. These corridors include infrastructure for CNG and electric-powered vehicles, along with additional corridors such as EV charging stations and future hydrogen stations.
ODOT is working closely with state partners like the Oklahoma Secretary of Energy and Environment (OSEE), along with tribal governments and local stakeholders like the Association of Central Oklahoma Governments and the Indian Nations Council of Governments.
The NEVI program will help expand EV charging infrastructure to rural and underserved areas.
Building out Alternative Fuel Corridors with EV charging stations at least every 50 miles will help EV drivers travel through all parts of Oklahoma.
