The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) released a Request for Proposal to install electric vehicle charging stations throughout the state. The state has approximately $3.1 million in Volkswagen State Environmental Trust Funds to support this program. Up to 80 percent of costs for charging stations are reimbursable through a competitive grant program. Eligible charging stations are DC fast charging (DCFC) stations on designated Transportation Corridors or DCFC and Level 2 charging stations at Single Point Locations. Applications will be accepted from November 29, 2018 through March, 1 2019.

The Oklahoma DEQ is also extending the deadline for their Alternative Fuel School Bus program from December 3 to December 20, 2018.
