The government will give nearly $5 billion to help states build out their charging infrastructure.
The plan aims to beef up charging access along interstate highways.
Right now one of the glaring reasons not to own an electric car is the charging.
That may not be the case for long if President Joe Biden's plan comes to fruition.
It's part of the White House's broader goal to curb climate change and get more Americans into zero-emission vehicles.
Biden aims for the US to have 500,000 public EV chargers by 2030, roughly 400,000 more plugs than are available today.
Officials would not offer specifics about how many chargers the $5 billion program would yield or when the first locations would open to the public. »
