2024 Virginia EV Infrastructure Deployment Survey

May 24, 2024

The Commonwealth of Virginia is investing $106 million in federal funding over the next five years to install public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. This funding, from the Federal Highway Administration’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program, will focus on direct current fast charging (DCFC) stations along alternative fuel corridors.

Environmental Benefits of EVs and PHEVs

Electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) offer Virginians a chance to significantly reduce their environmental impact. EVs produce no tailpipe emissions, while PHEVs, which use both electricity and gasoline, emit less than conventional vehicles. Even considering emissions from electricity production, EVs are cleaner overall than gasoline-powered cars.
