(Idaho Department of Transportation, June 13, 2022)
The Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) needs your help to determine the future of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in Idaho. The US Department of Transportation recently announced the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program, an initiative to fund strategically placed charging stations across the country in an effort to establish an interconnected network for cross-country travel for electric vehicles (EV). You can learn more about this program by visiting ITD’s website here.
ITD is pleased to invite Idahoans to share their feedback about where these charging stations should be built, focusing on locations near Idaho’s interstates and highways. Once this information is compiled, ITD will present its findings to the NEVI Program at the US Dept. of Transportation to help guide future EV infrastructure rollout. To learn more about the program and voice your ideas, please join us for one of seven public meetings scheduled throughout the state upcoming this month:

We also encourage you to participate in our online survey by clicking here. The survey will take about 8 minutes to complete and is helpful in informing the state electric vehicle infrastructure plan. The more data we collect, the more the Idaho plan will reflect the will of Idahoans statewide.
Please help fellow Idahoans voice their feedback by sharing this information on appropriate platforms and amongst contacts. We look forward to hearing your ideas! If you have additional questions or would like more information from ITD about the Idaho EV Infrastructure Plan, please email us at email@example.com.
