Utah DOT receives $43 million in grants to build EV fast charging stations

Utah’s DOT plans to invest a total of about $43 million to build DC fast charging stations in the state.

Utah has been awarded funding of $36 million through the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. UDOT will require a minimum 20% private match for the new charging projects, and 75 entities have submitted applications.

The program’s first phase will use about $17.5 million to add 15 new sites along Utah’s interstate highways by the end of 2024. The aim is to provide access  to EV fast charging every 50 miles.

“Building out the statewide charging network really opens the door to let Utahns choose to travel where they want, when they want, in the way they want,” commented UDOT Executive Director Carlos Braceras.
