The California Energy Commission (CEC) recently released a “Matchmaking Tool” to connect potential site hosts with potential project leads for applications under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program, a $5 billion federal program that will provide California $384 million over 5 years to build out Level 3/DC fast charge electric vehicle (EV) charging stations along federally-designated Alternative Fuel Corridors. The purpose of the NEVI program is to deploy an interconnected network of convenient, affordable, reliable and equitable charging infrastructure across the country including those along interstates for ease of travel to neighboring states, and rural state routes. Initially, the state will prioritize segments that have infrastructure gaps. The tool can be accessed here.
