Grants available for charging stations for EV fleets

The MPCA requests proposals from qualified applicants to install Level 2 and/or Level 3 EV charging stations at locations serving fleet vehicles in Minnesota.

The purpose of this program is to reduce air emissions that result from the consistent use of gasoline-fueled commercial fleet vehicles through an increased use of electric vehicles for fleet purposes. The intent is to support a healthy environment for all Minnesotans and achieve significant emissions reductions across the state, especially in high population areas most impacted by vehicle pollution.
