On February 7, 2019, Electrify America announced that its National Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) Investment Plan for Cycle 2 is now available and that the company will start executing on the plan this year. Cycle 2 is a 30-month investment period that begins in July 2019.
The $300 million investment will build on Electrify America’s initial priorities and expand into new areas, where the need for electric vehicle charging stations and technology are greatest or are most likely to be used regularly.
The investment plan includes charging infrastructure in 18 major metropolitan areas, smaller markets, highways, and regional routes. There are deployments specifically geared towards autonomous vehicles, and investments slated for renewable generation. The plan also includes education and awareness programs.
