Charleston Area Will Get a New Electric Charging Station

The West Virginia Department of Transportation said this week that it has a new plan for electric vehicle charging stations and submitted that to the federal government. All 50 states were required to submit a National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan by Monday, Aug. 1. West Virginia’s plan calls for installing electric vehicle charging stations in the Charleston area on Interstate 64, 77 or 79. Plans also call for an electric charging station in the Beckley area, Huntington, Morgantown, and Wheeling. The Mountain State is expected to get $45.7 million over the next five years through the NEVI program to help pay to deploy more charging stations.
