OKLAHOMA City (KFOR) – The Oklahoma Division of Transportation is hosting a digital general public assembly to present information and get public comments on Oklahoma’s Electrical Motor vehicle Strategy to broaden the availability of EV charging stations along significant highway corridors as a result of a new federal program.

Oklahoma will get $66 million in federal funding during the up coming five years as a result of the Nationwide Electric Vehicle Infrastructure software to enhance and grow its statewide network of EV charging stations.

By community-personal partnerships, charging stations will be installed near interstates and other big highways and operated by exterior companions like truck stops, procuring centers, neighborhood governments and tribes.

The general public can go to Oklahoma’s EV System Digital Conference anytime to see a recorded presentation and to post reviews to ODOT as a result of July 5.

Federal recommendations involve NEVI software funding to prioritize including charging stations at least every single 50 miles alongside interstates and other currently-selected Different Fuel Corridors. These parts involve big freeway and turnpike corridors like US-69, US-81 and US-412 alongside the Cimarron and Cherokee turnpikes. The moment these corridors in Oklahoma been tackled, the remaining federal funds can be made use of to make out EV charging infrastructure in other underserved locations.

There is no in-particular person assembly scheduled for this method.
