PennDOT Submits $171 Million EV Charging Station Plan to Feds

Written by Joe Mueller, The Center Square


...80% of each EV charging infrastructure project, including the cost of acquisition, installation and operations. PennDOT is planning to develop a funding program where third parties, such as site hosts or EV network companies, will fund the remaining 20% and collect revenue generated from EV drivers using the charging stations.


PennDOT estimates 31,000 EVs are registered in the state, nearly triple the 9,700 registered in 2019. The International Council on Clean Transportation predicts Pennsylvania will have 360,000 EVs by 2030.


PennDOT received 4,400 responses to a survey on EVs and the infrastructure plan. More than 72% stated construction of a consistent, robust charging network to enhance availability when and where people need to charge was the highest priority. Approximately 28% of respondents said their household income was between $100,000 and $200,000 while another 28% preferred not to provide household income information.
