More Electric Vehicle Charging Stations Coming to Iowa

If you own an electric vehicle in Iowa, finding a charging station for your vehicle should be a lot easier. The Iowa Department of Transportation has recently released a Notice of Funding Opportunity for electric vehicle charging infrastructure along interstate alternative fuel corridors.

The process will be used to disburse Iowa’s share of federal funding through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program, supporting the roll-out of electric vehicle charging infrastructure within Iowa.

This funding round is intended to fund reliable fast-charging infrastructure to enable long-distance travel. The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program formula funds provide money to support the strategic deployment of electric charging infrastructure nationwide.

As of June, there are nearly 13,000 electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles registered within Iowa, and every county is home to at least one.

More information about the notice of funding opportunity and charging of electric vehicles in Iowa can be found on Iowa DOT’s electric vehicle plan website:
