CT to get $52.5M for EV charging stations

Connecticut is in line to receive $52.5 million from the recently passed federal infrastructure bill to help expand its electric vehicle charging network. That figure, provided this week by the office of U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., would be funneled into electric vehicle charging stations, as well as other infrastructure needed to support the state’s gradually but steadily increasing fleet of electric cars, trucks, buses and other vehicles. The infrastructure bill, one of the most visible of President Joe Biden’s legislative efforts, cleared the U.S. House on Friday after being approved by the Senate in August. It includes roughly $1 trillion for the reconstruction of roads and bridges, as well as investments in public transit, renewable energy and broadband internet service.
