The Indiana Department of Transportation has issued a Request For Information to help explain the state’s electric vehicle implementation plan. INDOT says it is set to receive about $14.7 million in National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure formula funds this year and expects to invest $100 million for EV charging infrastructure over the next five years.
The funding is part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
In preparation to deploy EV charging infrastructure, the state is developing a federally-required State EV Implementation Plan. The department says RFI responses and the EV implementation plan will guide the state’s NEVI funding deployment and evaluation of competitive grant opportunities.
According to INDOT, Indiana’s interstates are designated alternative fuel corridors, and under the NEVI program, INDOT is required to have infrastructure installed first. The plan must also meet guidelines for charger efficiency, location, and accessibility.
INDOT says it will accept RFI responses through April 29. You can connect to the RFI by clicking here.
