The Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Infrastructure Plan is a federal requirement to obtain National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program funding from the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill (BIL). The Federal NEVI Program is intended to create a network of EV fast chargers across the country that provides reliable and consistent infrastructure to support long distance travel. For North Dakota, the first phase of the program will build chargers no more than 50 miles apart and less than one mile off exits along I-94 and I-29 (Alternate Fuel Corridors).

North Dakota will receive approximately $25.9 million from the NEVI Formula Program through FY 2026.The NEVI Formula Program aims to provide a nationwide network of EV chargers that ensures a convenient, reliable, affordable, and equitable charging experience for all users. In the future, a national network of 500,000 charging stations is expected to be established throughout the United States.
