Biden Wants Charging Stations Every 50 Miles on Federal Highways

These new charging stations would be open to all consumers no matter the vehicle they drive


  • The administration is planning for 500,000 new charging stations by 2030.

  • These new stations would not require memberships.


The lack of charging stations continues to be an issue for most consumers considering the purchase of an electric vehicle. The Biden Administration plans to change this as it will propose that new charging stations be installed along federal highways in all states including the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

Crucially, these stations will be set up every 50 miles on the highways and be open to all EV owners and drivers. There will be no need to belong to a club, hold a membership, or drive a specific brand in order to recharge.

“Everyone should be able to find a working charging station when and where they need it without worrying about paying more or getting worse service because of where they live,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said, as reported by USA Today.

One of the Biden Administration’s many goals is to build 500,000 public charging stations and have them online by 2030 as part of its $5 billion investment in the federal charging infrastructure.
