In a bid to promote electric vehicle adoption, three states — California, New Jersey and New York — recently announced investments of up to $1.3 billion in vehicle charging stations, according to The Verge.
California's Public Utilities Commission has allocated up to $738 million, and private utilities have committed millions more to support approximately 1,500 charging stations.
New Jersey's Public Service Enterprise Group has pledged $300 million to build as many as 50,000 charging stations along highways, in residential areas and at workplaces.
The New York governor's office has promised up to $250 million through 2025 for its electric vehicle expansion initiative, EVolve NY. The New York Power Authority has agreed to work with the private sector to install up to 200 DC fast chargers every 30 miles along interstate corridors.
