NEVI Formula Program

  • The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program was authorized under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, which was enacted as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
  • The $5 billion NEVI Formula Program will provide dedicated funding to states to strategically deploy electrical vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure and create an interconnected network that supports data collection, access and reliability.
  • Washington’s portion is $71 M total over five years, including $10.5 million for the first year.

Federal program goals

  • Put the U.S. on the path to a network of 500,000 EV chargers.
  • Accelerate the adoption of EVs.
  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Help the U.S. lead global transportation electrification efforts.
  • Build out alternative fuel corridors.

Federal requirements for state plans

  • Minimum of four 150kW combo charging system direct current fast chargers per site.
  • Site power capability no less than 600 kW.
  • 50 miles between sites along designated alternative fuel corridors within one mile of the highway.
  • Interagency Electric Vehicle Coordinated Council.

Plan-supported activities

This plan supports a number of activities, including:

  • UW Sustainability Project.
  • Zero-Emission Vehicles Mapping and Forecasting Tool (ZEV-MFT): WSDOT must develop a public mapping and forecasting tool that shows the locations of charging and refueling infrastructure.
  • Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Partnerships.
