Now Open: CA Energy Commission NEVI DCFC EV Charging Formula Program – Due 1/26/24; Webinar 11/09/23
California’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program
California Energy Commission
This is a competitive grant solicitation. The California Energy Commission (CEC) announces the availability of up to $40,500,000 in grant funds for projects that will strategically deploy high-powered direct current fast charger (DCFC) electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and establish an interconnected network to facilitate data collection, access, and reliability.
Each application must choose one of the six (6) identified corridor groups. See Page 12 of the Application Manual doument for more information.
NEVI is an initiative to create a coast-to-coast network of EV chargers focused on major highways that support the majority of long-distance trips. This national network will give drivers confidence that they can always find a place to charge, jump start private investment in charging infrastructure and EVs, and support President Biden’s goal of at least 50% of vehicle sales to be electric by 2030.
The CEC is collaborating with the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) on charging infrastructure deployment and expects to enter into an agreement with Caltrans to implement and administer California’s NEVI formula program.
There will be one Pre-Application Workshop; participation in this meeting is optional but encouraged. The Pre-Application Workshop will be held remotely through Zoom and conference call at 9am-12pm on November 9.
This solicitation is open to all private entities, excluding Investor-Owned Utilities.
