About the (NEVI) Formula Program
The South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) is responsible for adoption and implementation of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program. This plan was created in consultation with the Energy Office of the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff (Energy Office) and the South Carolina Division of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA-SC).
South Carolina's plan will prioritize placement of passenger car electric vehicle (EV) charging equipment along the interstate highway system to complement completion of the national network. Initial emphasis will be placed on rural sections of interstate where the lack of urban facilities makes it less feasible for investments from the private sector. Public outreach and stakeholder engagement will occur to identify fair, equitable, and contextually appropriate locations for the equipment.
