The Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA) has announced plans to expand electric vehicle (EV) fast charging infrastructure along portions of Interstates 20 and 459.

As part of the initiative, ADECA has issued a request for proposals to build direct-current fast charger (DCFC) stations along specific highway corridors in the state. ADECA will provide up to 80% of the cost. Critical corridors were laid out in the Alabama Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Plan, unveiled in July 2020 in collaboration with the Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition.

To further promote the growth of EVs, Alabama Power will support ADECA by matching up to 20% of the cost to install DCFCs. This advanced technology can charge many EV batteries in 20 to 30 minutes.
