COLUMBUS – State Rep. Richard Dell'Aquila (D-Seven Hills) today applauds the announcement of 27 new electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to be built along seven of Ohio’s interstate corridors thanks largely to $18 million dollars of federal funding from the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program.

“Ohio is becoming an evermore significant leader in cutting edge technology. We are yet in the early stages of electric vehicle design; and new innovations and advancements will undoubtedly become available in the near future. As more electric vehicles enter the market, it is important that the necessary infrastructure is made available to support their development and the expansion of Ohio's economic growth in this area,” said Rep. Dell'Aquila.

Ohio will now be a national leader in developing charging stations for public use. Ohio is the first state in the nation to develop charging stations that will be funded by President Joe Biden’s NEVI Program.

Electric vehicles will help us meet ambitious climate goals, while providing good-paying jobs and economic stimulus to the state.
