Madison, WI – Wisconsin is set to significantly enhance its electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure with a $23.3 million grant, supporting the construction of fast-charging stations at 53 locations across the state. Governor Tony Evers and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT) announced the initiative, which aims to bolster the state’s EV network and support the growing number of EVs on Wisconsin roads.

According to WisDOT, the grant is part of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) program, funded through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. In total, the state is expected to receive over $78 million in federal NEVI funds over the next five years. With more than 23,000 EVs registered in Wisconsin, these new charging stations will play a crucial role in making sustainable transportation more accessible, supporting local businesses, families, and tourism.

The charging stations will be strategically built along Wisconsin’s Alternative Fuel Corridor, covering all corners of the state. The selected locations include fuel retailers, hotels, and restaurants, with two Tribal Nations receiving over $800,000 in funding. Construction is anticipated to begin as early as late summer.
