Biden’s Ambitious EV Plan Stalls Due to Inadequate Infrastructure Support

via NBC News

President Biden has set a goal of installing 500,000 public electric vehicle chargers by 2030 as part of his climate agenda.

However, few states have obligated funds from the $5 billion EV infrastructure program.

Experts say 1.2 million chargers will be needed by 2030 to meet climate goals, far more than the current 175,000.

Grants of $623 million were awarded but will fund only 47 charging projects and 7,500 ports.

Critics argue the planned 500,000 chargers won’t be enough.

High prices, limited range and lack of charging stations deter many from buying EVs currently.

A poll found four in 10 adults may consider EVs but gas vehicles remain very popular, with only 8% owning or leasing an EV currently.

Meeting tougher emissions standards will require much wider EV acceptance, but consumer resistance remains a challenge despite tax credits.
