Unlock New EV Charging Funding in California
The California Energy Commission has announced the availability of over $40M in grant funds for projects that will deploy DC Fast EV Charging Stations across California.
This new funding is part of California’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program and in this initial round, NEVI funds are being used to deploy chargers along federally-designated Alternative Fuel Corridors.
Each NEVI-funded DC fast charge station will have a minimum of four 150 kW Combined Charging System (CCS) connectors and a minimum total station power of 600 kW.

What is the funding source for the NEVI Formula Program?
The NEVI Formula Program is funded by the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021. It provides a total of $5 billion to states, with California’s share approximately $384 million over 5 years, to create a nationwide network of DC fast chargers.
Where can NEVI Formula Program funds be used?
Funds from the NEVI program must initially be allocated to federally-designated Alternative Fuel Corridors. Each funded charging station is required to have a minimum of four 150 kW Combined Charging System connectors, with a station power of at least 600 kW. These stations will be situated no more than 50 miles apart on freeways and highways, and within 1 mile of freeway exits or highway roadways.
Can NEVI funding be used outside of designated Alternative Fuel Corridors?
No, the NEVI Formula Program funding is restricted to designated Alternative Fuel Corridors. Funding cannot be used outside these corridors until the Secretary of Transportation certifies that the corridors are fully built out as per the requirements.
