Delaware’s Vehicle Electrification Future


The Federal Highway Administration has provided guidelines outlining their requirements for National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) funded EV charging stations placed along alternative fuel corridors (AFCs), as well as their expectations for the plans submitted on August 1, 2022 by each state.

The NEVI program guidance requires the following for fast EV charging stations:

  • Located within 1 mile of a designated AFC
  • Provide power regardless of time of day or year
  • Have a minimum of four ports
  • Minimum total station power capability of 600 kW
  • Minimum per port power capability of 150kW when employing 4 ports simultaneously
  • Not more than 50 miles between stations

The NEVI program guidance requires each state to consider the following in their plans:

  • Station designs that minimize any adverse impacts to the electric grid
  • The proximity of existing off-highway travel centers
  • The need for public stations in disadvantaged communities
  • The long-term operation of stations to protect the investment of public funds
  • Existing private, national, state, local, Tribal and territorial government EV infrastructure
  • Promoting private investment and cost-share initiatives
  • Potential future expansion

Alternative Fuel Corridors

Route 13, Route 113, Route 1, and Interstate 95 are all alternative fuel corridors in the State of Delaware.

Once the alternative fuel corridors have been approved as being fully built out, DelDOT will be able to fund charging stations on any public road.
