Georgia gets $130 million to build electric vehicle charging stations

Unless you’re in a major city, electric vehicle charging stations are relatively rare compared to traditional gas stations. But with this new $130 million from the federal government, Georgia plans to make charging much easier. Tesla Model 3 owner Luis Trejo loves his EV, but says it’s not perfect. “There’s the problem of having to plan your trips a lot more than you normally would,” Trejo told WJCL. With new funding from the bipartisan infrastructure bill, Trejo and others will be able to drive as far as they want without what’s called “range anxiety.” They will also help the environment. “Electric vehicles are the way to reduce this generation of CO2. In this way, it is able to help reduce global warming and its indirect effects,” said Masoud Davari, professor of electrical engineering at Georgia Southern. $130 million of the bipartisan infrastructure bill is now on its way to the fishing state. Create electric vehicle charging stations along major highways – like Interstate 16 and Interstate 95. According to GDOT, there will be a charging station at least every 50 miles with a minimum of four chargers. “If I have this new technology, I can just and easily use it. I think it’s a great opportunity to move towards electrification and carbonization,” Davari told WJCL. Trejo is energized by this news. “I think that’s great because electric vehicles are probably the way of the future to reduce fossil fuel consumption. We definitely need more infrastructure like that,” Trejo said. GDOT said it would start with alternative fuel corridors Georgia could lead the way with electric vehicle technology with that and the soon to be built Hyundai electric vehicle plant in Bryan County and the plant in Aspen Aerogels batteries just outside of Statesboro.

Georgia’s Department of Transportation announced on Tuesday that its electric vehicle infrastructure plans have been approved by the Federal Highway Administration.
