EV ownership continues to grow in our state. The U.S. Dept. of Energy reported more than 58,000 registered EVs on Florida roads at the end of 2020.
With interest growing and EVs here to stay, drivers will need convenient access to charging stations. That will be a growing piece of infrastructure nationwide and for your cooperative.
As part of a national plan to reach net-zero emissions by 2050, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law funding invests the largest amount ever in EV charging infrastructure. Funding will boost the build-out of 500,000 public charging stations by 2030. These stations — equipped with similar plug types, hardware hookups and payment options — will help fill gaps in rural locations.
Auto manufacturers are ramping up production of more attractive and affordable EV models to keep pace with demand. This competition is driving down vehicle prices and giving consumers more choices than ever — including compact cars, SUVs, and even electric pickup trucks that Ford, Chevy and other manufacturers plan to bring to market this year.
Many drivers enjoy the quiet, smooth ride and stronger acceleration they get with an EV. Most like the convenience of controlling the vehicle’s features from an app on their phone. With no tailpipe emissions, EVs contribute to a clean, sustainable energy future.
Automakers’ shift toward increased EV production and the expansion of charging infrastructure may also help create good-paying jobs and benefit our local economy.
