DC Fast Charging Infrastructure Program

In Phase 2 of the program, $7.1 million in Volkswagen funds are allocated to the DC Fast Infrastructure Program. 

This program is divided into two separate programs: the DC Fast Priority Corridors Program is designed to continue the expansion of the state's zero emission vehicle fast charging infrastructure network along designated priority corridors, while the DC Fast Existing Site Upgrades Program is designed to replace old obsolete DC Fast chargers and add capacity to existing DC Fast charging sites that meet program requirements.
