Join PennDot for a discussion of electric vehicle charging in Gettysburg

You are invited to join PennDOT for a community conversation to learn about electric vehicles (EVs) and how they best fit in your community.

The meeting is one of six being held around the state.

The discussion will concern EVs, the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program, funding options, and more.

Your voice matters in shaping the future of electric vehicle charging in Pennsylvania.

Information about NEVI and meetings will be added to our Learn About NEVI webpage.

We look forward to seeing you and discussing the future of EV charging deployment in PA!                            

Background:

The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) provides states with $7.5 billion to help make EV charging more accessible to all Americans for local and long-distance trips.

Over the five years of the NEVI Formula Program, Pennsylvania will receive $171.5 million in dedicated formula funding.

The Pennsylvania NEVI State Plan is an evolving document updated annually. The initial plan supports the allocation of federal funds for federal fiscal years 2022 and 2023. The FFY 2024 Pennsylvania NEVI Plan Update was submitted to the Federal Highway Administration on August 1, 2023, for approval and will support the allocation of federal funds for federal fiscal year 2024.

I likewise will be unable to attend but I would very much like those who make decisions to consider a couple of things: 1) does the US have the electrical infrastructure capacity to handle the volume of charging stations needed to handle the anticipated increase in electric vehicles? A good quantity of electric vehicles and batteries are manufactured in Tennessee – a place with a large electrical capacity but which occasionally has brownout issues. Can PA handle the load? 2) since China starting cracking down on bitcoin “mining” operations, bitcoin companies (often connected with the Chinese government) have started relocating… Read more »

I will not be able to attend the meeting due to other commitments, but would like to offer a suggestion. Since Gettysburg is a popular destination DC fast charging will be important for day trippers and the current superchargers at the Sheetz will not be enough. The standard for fast charging will be 250 KW so even 10 stalls will require 2.5 megawatts of power, that’s a lot and will limit where it can be put, likely near the substation near the Walmart. The other consideration should be to encourage all hotels to put level 2 chargers in their parking… Read more »

It’s great to know people will have options in future car purchases which the charging stations will support. Will also enhance tourism. We don’t have an electric vehicle but it pleases me to see Gettysburg taking the step forward.

I would assume that we will need electric charging stations sooner or later, personalty I have NO intentions on buying an electric car. I do not like to have things forced upon me. And that is the way I view what our VERY POOR president is doing to us.

No one is forcing you to do anything but pay your fair share of taxes. What you drive is your choice.
