In November 2021, President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Bipartisan Infrastructure Law), which provides $1.2 trillion for roads, bridges, mass transit, and other projects through 2026. The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program is part of that bill and provides $5 billion in funding for direct current (DC) fast charging sites. NEVI aims to establish a coast-to-coast charging network in the US. It supercharges America’s transition to electric vehicles and the EV charging industry in general.

US states will receive NEVI funds to purchase chargers and their related infrastructure. But there are some requirements and additional incentives involved. If you’d like expert advice about NEVI-compliance, reach out to one of our experts.

What are the NEVI requirements for charging infrastructure?

The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and US Department of Transportation have proposed regulations for NEVI-funded charging sites. These requirements cover everything from installation to data connections. The full list can be found on the US government website here, but here are some of the most important requirements:

Once a state has constructed the required number of chargers on designated Alternative Fuel Corridors, it can fund charging sites on other highways and within cities with any funds remaining. They can also add more chargers to existing sites to increase capacity and reliability. The federal government will cover up to 80 percent of project costs—the remaining must be funded privately or by the state.

Altogether, the vast network of charging sites will be able to charge millions of EVs and help move the US to a cleaner, electrified future. “A century ago, America ushered in the modern automotive era; now America must lead the electric vehicle revolution,” said US Department of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg at a press event. “The President’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will help us win the EV race by working with states, labor, and the private sector to deploy a historic nationwide charging network that will make EV charging accessible for more Americans.”

According to consulting firm The Brattle Group, there could be as many as 35 million EVs in the US by 2030, and those vehicles will need up to 2 million public chargers. NEVI will give states the funds to purchase and install those chargers, but it’s up to the EV charging industry to build and install them.

Tritium is opening a manufacturing facility in Tennessee that is expected to be capable of producing more than 10,000 DC fast chargers per year, with the potential to produce about 30,000 units per year at peak capacity. The facility will employ more than 500 people over the next five years and chargers produced in the facility should meet FWHA Buy America requirements starting in the first quarter of 2023.

How does Tritium meet NEVI requirements?

Tritium’s current NEVI solution consists of four PKM150 150kW chargers with two power rectifier units. The chargers deliver 150kW of power to four EVs simultaneously through a reliable, easily upgradeable on-site charging infrastructure.

Tritium’s current NEVI solution: Four PKM150 chargers with two rectifier units.

Thanks to multiple chargers and power rectifier units, the Tritium NEVI solution provides backup charging power for higher reliability and site uptime.

The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is a law that provides nearly $370 billion in climate change investments to help reduce carbon emissions by 40 percent by 2030. It provides significant tax breaks for businesses that purchase new medium and heavy-duty electric vehicles (EVs) and new chargers. 

These include:

The IRA tax credits will start after December 31, 2022, and end after December 31, 2032. Businesses can use the credits after receiving other grants or rebates like NEVI funding. These credits, along with many other grants and programs, make electrifying your fleet in the US more affordable than ever.

How does the Clean Commercial Vehicle Credit work?

The Clean Commercial Vehicle Credit lets businesses claim up to 30 percent of the difference between the cost of a clean vehicle and its gas-powered counterpart (up to $40,000) for a medium or heavy-duty commercial EV that weighs more than 14,000 pounds. If a vehicle weighs less than 14,000 pounds, business can claim up to $7,500 per vehicle. There are no income limits on eligibility for the tax credit and the vehicles businesses purchase don’t have to be made or assembled in North America. Businesses cannot sell the tax credits to anyone or any company (like a dealer) for cash.

How does the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit work?

The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit is a general business tax credit for any company that installs EV chargers, including direct current (DC) fast charging stations. It will offset up to 30 percent of the total costs of purchase and installation of charging equipment, up to $100,000 per charger. Businesses cannot use the credit to offset expenses related to permitting and inspection.

Companies can only use the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit for chargers installed in a census area where the poverty rate is at least 20 percent or where the median family income in the area is equal to or less than 80 percent of the statewide median family income.

Businesses can apply the tax credit after receiving other EV grants or rebates, but only to the charger costs not covered by those grants or rebates. Resellers may claim this credit even if they’re selling charging equipment to a tax-exempt organization (nonprofit), government organization, or foreign entity (state or local government/tribes), but they must disclose in writing the amount of the credit. Tritium chargers, including the RT50, RTM75, PKM150, and RT175-S, qualify for the Alternative Refueling Credit.

How does the revised $7,500 Clean Vehicle Credit work?

This is a 10-year extension of the well-known $7,500 Clean Vehicle Credit, but it has been revised. Now it is split into two parts:

There is an income limit for the new Clean Vehicle Credit of $150,000 per year for an individual and $300,000 per year for a household, and the credit will be applied at dealerships during purchase. There are also limits on vehicle price: SUVs, pickups, and vans are limited to $80,000 and all other vehicles are limited to $55,000.

Last, but not least, the law will eliminate the cap on the number of vehicles that can be sold per automaker. The limit was 200,000 EVs per manufacturer, which made Tesla, General Motors, and Toyota EVs ineligible to receive the tax credit. Now you’ll be able to apply the Clean Vehicle Credit to EVs from those automakers.

How does the Previously-Owned Clean Vehicle Credit work?

This is another new tax credit for people who purchase used EVs. It’s worth $4,000 or 30 percent of the vehicle sale price (whichever is lower), and the credit will be applied at dealerships during purchase. There is a $75,000-per-year income limit for individuals and a $150,000-per-year income limit per household. The used EVs purchased must weigh less than 14,000 pounds and have a sale price of less than $25,000. The used EV must be at least two years old when you purchase the vehicle. For example, if you purchase a used EV in 2023, it must be a 2021 or earlier model year. It can be used for fuel cell vehicles and plug-in hybrids and the vehicles are not subject to the same sourcing requirements as new EVs.

Twelve 350kW chargers at MOTO’s new Rugby services offer a taste of the future.

The Electric Highway – the world’s first nationwide charging network, has today opened the UK’s largest high power motorway charging site, a development it promises will become ubiquitous as it transforms its network of facilities on the country’s motorways and major roads.  

The installation is the first under the Electric Highway’s new partnership with GRIDSERVE, which saw the company take a 25% stake in the Highway – as well as bringing its acclaimed technology and expertise to the network.  

The Electric Highway’s flagship motorway installation is open now at MOTO’s brand-new Rugby services at Junction 1 of the M6. The new facility includes 12 state-of-of-the-art high-powered pumps from Tritium, able to charge any EV at 350kW – adding up to 350 km (217 mi) of range to an EV in 10 minutes or less. All of these chargers are contactless.  

“With an increasing demand for high power public charging infrastructure, Tritium is proud to be working in collaboration with Gridserve and Ecotricity to deliver the largest electric vehicle charging facility on Britain’s motorway services,” said Kevin Pugh, Tritium’s UK Country Manager. “Key partnerships like this will be important to scaling up and meeting future demand, with the significant growth of EV uptake in the near future.”

As part of the major Electric Highway transformation programme – funded by GRIDSERVE investor Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC – all existing 50kW pumps will be replaced this summer while in parallel, work has begun on high power installations across its entire network.  

Toddington Harper, CEO of GRIDSERVE, said:

“GRIDSERVE’s purpose is to deliver sustainable energy and move the needle on climate change, and the rollout of high power chargers across Britain’s motorways in partnership with Moto will do just that – providing drivers with the confidence to go electric today. 

“To see what the future of electric vehicle charging on the UK motorway network looks like, you can now visit Moto’s new Motorway Service Area at Rugby. After announcing our Electric Highway partnership with Ecotricity in March, and supported by Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC, we’ve been hard at work putting in the charging infrastructure needed to give people the confidence to make the transition to electric vehicles, by delivering 6-12 high power 350kW chargers across the network as quickly as possible, as well as replacing all the existing chargers with the latest technology.” 

Dale Vince, Founder, The Electric Highway, added:

“We began building the Electric Highway ten years ago and Moto were one of our founding partners. Back then, state-of-the-art charging was just 7kW and here we are today at 350kW in just a decade.  This is our very first high power installation, and this new technology comes just at a tipping point in the adoption of electric vehicles.

“This marks the beginning of our new partnership with GRIDSERVE, and kickstarts a comprehensive programme where these installations will become ubiquitous on the motorway network, helping to make the experience of using an electric car no different to using a fossil-powered one.”

New service will launch next month in lower Manhattan with an initial fleet of 50 Teslas. Revel’s rideshare program will help accelerate the buildout of its fast-charging Superhubs.

[NEW YORK, NY, April 28, 2021] – Electric mobility company Revel announced today that it is launching an all-electric, all-employee rideshare service in New York City. The service will launch in late May in Manhattan, with a fleet of 50 Revel-blue Teslas available for pickups and dropoffs below 42nd Street. These 50 vehicles represent the first phase of the rideshare program, and Revel will expand the fleet size and service area in the next year to meet New Yorkers’ need for zero-emissions rideshare. Revel’s rideshare service will also help the company accelerate the buildout of its fast-charging Superhub network in New York City.

“Cities like New York don’t need another company promising electric fleets in 2030 – they need companies delivering now,” said Revel CEO and Co-Founder Frank Reig. “Revel is building a platform to electrify cities, and rideshare is a key part of it.”

Unlike the traditional rideshare model, the Revel fleet will be owned and maintained by the company, with drivers brought on as employees rather than independent contractors. Drivers will receive training and will have access to benefits including health care and paid time off.

Revel rideshare alongside a Revel-branded Tritium RTM DC fast charger

Revel’s fleet of Tesla Model Ys will have distinct features like extra legroom, with the front passenger seat removed from each car, and the ability for passengers to control the temperature and music through an interactive touchscreen. All cars will follow the same COVID-19 guidelines, with a partition separating the driver from the passenger(s) and daily cleanings by the Revel team. Even with these upgraded features, pricing for Revel’s service will be competitive with other rideshare companies.

“Going electric should be an easy decision,” said Revel COO and Co-Founder Paul Suhey. “The experience will feel like a free upgrade, so choosing Revel should be a no-brainer for New Yorkers.”

In addition to offering New Yorkers a zero-emissions rideshare option, Revel’s service will help the company accelerate the expansion of its EV fast-charging Superhub network in New York City.  Revel announced in February that it will soon open the largest universal fast charging depot in North America, with its first location in Brooklyn. The chargers for this site, provided by Tritium, a global leader in DC fast charging, will be open to the public on a 24/7 basis and accessible to owners of any electric vehicle brand. This Superhub will go live in June with its first 10 chargers, and more locations across New York City are planned for 2021.

“People have evolved to a ‘need it now’ society, and we are certainly a convenience-driven culture, demanding technology solutions that expedite and enhance nearly every aspect of our daily lives,” said Tritium President of the Americas Mike Calise. “Revel’s rideshare is a major step in creating a more convenient, sustainable, and people-focused transportation future. Tritium is proud to provide the innovative DC fast charging hardware and technology to get these vehicles back on the road fast.”

Revel’s rideshare service will have a waitlist due to expected demand and limited availability. New Yorkers who want to try Revel rideshare can sign up for the waitlist in-app or online starting today.

Cohort to Focus on Bringing Electric Power Technology and Infrastructure to Army Vehicles.

[TORRANCE, California, April 27, 2021] – Tritium, a global leader in DC fast charging technology for electric vehicles (EVs), today announced that it has been selected to participate in the Power Transfer Cohort, powered by the Army Applications Laboratory (AAL) in collaboration with Alion Science and Technology. This program focuses on advancing solutions that will support remote access, rapid recharging, and scalable infrastructure to help the Army move to EVs. Tritium is the only DC fast charging provider which was selected for the program.

Companies in the Cohort will work directly with the Next Generation Combat Vehicle Cross Functional Team (NGCV) and the Ground Vehicle Systems Center (GVSC) to identify and explore EV infrastructure technologies that can work across the diverse fleet of ~225,000 Army vehicles operating in the most demanding environments.

“Tritium specializes in hardware and software designed to work reliably in any high demand environment, including extreme climate conditions. We are thrilled to be working with the Army Application Laboratory on this important initiative to provide a rapid charging solution for a diverse set of vehicles,” said Tritium President of the Americas Mike Calise. “Our company’s innovative, scalable, and future-proof technology will be a great addition to help power the Army’s fleet.”

Designed for qualified companies that may not typically work on U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) projects, the Cohort Program provides non-dilutive funding to complete an intense program that culminates in a concept design presentation to Army stakeholders. Each cohort focuses on solving a specific problem aligned to the Army’s 16-year modernization strategy. The Power Transfer Cohort is an 8-week program, and each company selected to participate receives a contract for $100,000 with the potential for follow-on awards.

“Last year, we launched and validated this new Cohort Program approach. We know it works, and we’re already seeing the results for our Army mission partners,” said COL Len Rosanoff, director of AAL. “The Power Transfer Cohort is a chance to show that this model can scale across the Army to solve other complex problems. This approach will make the Army a better business partner for industry. And we want others in the Army to know they can do this, too.”

Last fall, Tritium unveiled their Modular Scalable Charging (MSC) platform, the first to enable truly scalable EV charging networks anywhere in the world. The hardware platform provides customers with the flexibility to increase the power level of their charger as EV charging capabilities advance, starting at 25kW and increasing to 350kW and beyond.

The Power Transfer Cohort began virtually on March 29, 2021, and is scheduled to conclude with concept design presentations to NGCV leadership on May 20, 2021.
