New Hampshire NEVI Program – All You Need To Know

May 12, 2024

The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) has released the first annual update to the State’s Plan for Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. The 2023 update provides details on progress made over the last year to develop a coordinated network of fast charging stations along designated Alternative Fuel Corridors.

New Hampshire FY 2024 Approved Plan

The following stations are all under construction as Tesla Supercharger-network chargers. It is anticipated that these stations will not be NEVI-compliant and require NEVI funding to be brought to NEVI-compliance.

The following stations are all planned under a non-NEVI CFI Grant program, if the grant is awarded. It is anticipated that these stations will be NEVI-compliant and not require NEVI funding.

State agencies including NHDOT, the Department of Environmental Services, and the new Department of Energy have continued working together on Plan coordination. While no formal agreements have been signed, the interagency collaboration aims to ensure goals are aligned for deploying chargers efficiently. Funding from the Volkswagen settlement is supporting an initial set of charger sites selected through the DES process.

Public and stakeholder engagement activities outlined in the updated Plan focus on understanding EV charging needs. Surveys will gather data on priorities, barriers and preferred locations from both the general public and key groups. An interactive map and other tools will help evaluate feedback received. Outreach is planned with communities across urban, rural and underserved areas.

Utilities also play an important role in the planning process. Proposers must coordinate with the four main electric distribution companies serving the state. This early coordination is intended to evaluate site feasibility and identify opportunities for resilience solutions if battery storage is incorporated.

The 2023 NEVI Plan provides more definition around New Hampshire’s efforts to strategically deploy chargers along travel corridors and stimulate further private sector involvement. Upcoming annual updates will report on progress implementing this evolving strategy to expand electric mobility options in the state.
