Gannett Fleming is proud to partner with the New Jersey Department of Transportation (NJDOT) and other key New Jersey agencies, including the New Jersey Governor’s Office, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Board of Public Utilities, and New Jersey Economic Development Authority, in the development of New Jersey’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Deployment Plan.

This plan advances the significant efforts underway in New Jersey to accomplish a statewide network of publicly available electric vehicle (EV) chargers and equitable access to EVs.

On Nov. 15, 2021, the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law was enacted into law as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (Pub. L. 117-58). It established the new National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program, authorized under the Highway Infrastructure Program, which supports the goal of a nationwide network of 500,000 EV chargers by 2030 and ensures a convenient, reliable, affordable, and equitable charging experience for all users.

Under this program, New Jersey submitted an EV infrastructure deployment plan describing how the state plans to use its apportioned NEVI Formula Program funds per this guidance. The New Jersey Plan was submitted on July 30, 2022, to the Joint Office of Energy and Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The FHWA approved New Jersey’s Plan on Sept. 27, 2022.

New Jersey policies and public law have established the vision and goals of:

  • 330,000 light-duty, plug-in EVs registered in New Jersey, 400 direct current fast charging stations for EVs, and 1,000 Level 2 chargers by 2025.
  • 2 million light-duty, plug-in EVs registered by 2035.
  • 85% of light-duty vehicle sales shall be plug-in EVs by 2040.
