National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) corridor 7 is one of the six corridor groups included in round 1 of the California Energy Commission’s NEVI Formula Program, which has announced the availability of up to $40,500,000 in grant funds for projects that will strategically deploy high-powered, direct-current fast charger electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
“As EV adoption grows, infrastructure needs to catch up. While we’ve been working tirelessly to fulfill the necessity for high-quality EV infrastructure, we’re thankful our goals are aligned with NEVI,” said Nxu Founder, Chairman and CEO Mark Hanchett. “We continue to deepen our relationships with CalTrans and the California Energy Commission, as we continue to secure sites in California. We look forward to the exciting work ahead, electrifying the highways increasingly trafficked with EVs every day.”
