AEA Seeks Public Comment on Alaska’s EV Infrastructure Implementation Plan


June 30, 2022

(SitNews) Anchorage, Alaska - The Alaska Energy Authority (AEA) is working with the Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities and diverse stakeholders across the state to develop an Electric Vehicle (EV) Infrastructure Implementation Plan as required by the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act’s National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. Through the NEVI program, Alaska will receive more than $50 million over five years.

These formula funds will be used to build a statewide EV fast-charging network and community- based charging sites in rural and urban areas across Alaska. This funding will be administered by AEA to strategically deploy publicly accessible EV supply equipment.

To receive the allocated funds, AEA must submit an EV infrastructure implementation plan by Monday, August 1, 2022, to the Federal Highway Administration describing AEA’s goals and how it intends to use NEVI funds. The plan will cover areas such as charging infrastructure deployment, existing and future conditions, and public engagement. The Alaska Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Implementation Plan is available online.

Comments on the NEVI plan can be emailed to or complete the online form at The comment period is open until Friday, July 29, 2022, at 5 p.m.

AEA also invites the public to participate in listening and public feedback sessions on Wednesday, July 13, 2022, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. or 4 to 6 p.m. AEA will provide a presentation on the implementation plan and facilitate discussion prior to final plan submission. To join, click here.
