    In its “Texas Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan” draft released June 12, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) laid out its proposal to create more electric vehicle (EV) charging stations throughout the sta

     

    According to the draft, it is “a multi-year plan to enable current and future drivers of EVs to confidently travel across the state for work, recreation, and exploration.”

    The idea was conceived after the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act was signed into law by President Biden in November 2021. The federal lawallocated $408 million for Texas to create a network of charging stations.

    The White House also stated that, “Texas will also have the opportunity to apply for the $2.5 billion in grant funding dedicated to EV charging in the bill.”

    According to their schedule in the draft, TxDOT will submit the plan to the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) by August 1, 2022 and, pending approval, will submit their solicitation for charging stations by October 1. TxDOT wants to start awarding contracts to build charging stations in January 2023 and continue for the next five years.
