On July 1, Ohio EPA opened applications and released full program details for $3.25 million in grants for publicly accessible electric vehicle charging stations. While All eligible parties can apply directly, if your organization is seeking assistance, Clean Fuels Ohio can provide information resources, project competitiveness vetting, and grant writing services.
If you are gearing up to apply for these Ohio EPA VW EVSE grants, you won’t want to miss out on the Electrification focused sessions at the free 2020 Midwest Green Transportation Forum virtual conference taking place September 14-25 (https://www.cleanfuelsohio.org/mwgt-electric-vehicles). Even though the conference has already started, you can still register! You can see our Electric Vehicle Sessions for the MWGT Forum & Expo on our website here.
Electric vehicle and supply equipment technologies are advancing rapidly and as this happens, industry leaders and experts are seeing opportunity creation for fleet electrification, EVSE and EV funding programs, as well as collaboration between a wide range of stakeholders from utilities, state agencies, and manufacturers.
Sessions at the Virtual Conference will include: Ohio's Utility Electrification Plans, EV Charging Planning Structures and Tools, Proven Best Practices and Innovations for Retail EV Charging, Models and Best Practices for Residential and Workplace EV Charging.
VW EVSE Key Details: Eligible applicants include public or private entities in the 26 counties that Ohio EPA has identified as eligible to receive funds from the grant program. Applications will be accepted through Sept. 30, 2020.
