This legislation will spend a significant amount of taxpayer dollars on building electric vehicle charging infrastructure. If appropriate guardrails are not placed on that funding, electric utilities will be able to access those taxpayer-funded programs while also using ratepayer funds to invest in EV charging equipment. This creates an unlevel playing field for retailers and makes investment in charging equipment less attractive to the private sector.
Congress needs to hear directly from you on why our industry is better equipped to own and operate charging stations. Please contact your members of Congress today to advocate for the industry’s interests in infrastructure legislation.
