Two years ago, President Joe Biden allocated a substantial $7.5 billion toward the construction of thousands of electric vehicle charging stations across the nation, but the promised rollout remains elusive.
Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law invested $7.5 billion in EV charging when signed into law in 2021. Congress backed the legislation and agreed to build a national network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030.
