Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

A Growing Network


Looking at a map of charging stations in Minnesota, you can hardly see the state! That's a good thing.

An ever-growing network of charging stations are making trips and commutes of all kinds possible. Businesses, schools, employers, cities, state agencies, utility companies, and other organizations are building in charging options.


VW Scandal


How do local units of government learn about the Volkswagen emissions settlement?

Volkswagen has agreed to settle allegations that it violated the federal Clean Air Act by selling vehicles that emit air pollution over the legal limit, and by cheating on federal emission tests to hide the excess pollution. As part of the settlement, states are eligible to receive funds to pay part of the cost of projects to reduce diesel emissions from vehicles and to install electric vehicle charging stations.
