US Electric Companies Combine Efforts To Eliminate EV "'Charging Deserts"

E&E News reports, “Six major electric companies in the Southeast and Midwest have formed a coalition to boost electric vehicle charging stations throughout those regions. The Electric Highway Coalition’s goal is to build enough direct-current fast-charging units to connect the Atlantic coast, the Midwest and the South as well as the Gulf Coast and Central Plains regions. The news is a sign that electric vehicles, half of which are now sold in California, might be rolling toward a more national profile.”

American Electric Power issued a news release about the initiative on behalf of the coalition.

The White House issued a statement following a virtual meeting about “shared priorities” attended by administration officials and executives of EV charging infrastructure firms on Tuesday.
