Top U.S. Utilities Collaborate to Build EV Charging Stations

American Electric Power, Dominion Energy Inc., Duke Energy Corp., Entergy Corp., Southern Co., and the Tennessee Valley Authority unveiled a plan to connect major highway systems across the U.S. with EV fast chargers. The territories being covered would stretch from the South and Gulf regions to the Midwest and Central Plains. “The path to cleaner transportation is a robust charging infrastructure along the nation’s major highways,” said Lang Reynolds, director of electrification strategy for Duke Energy. “Range anxiety is a barrier to more EV adoption. This coalition can erase those obstacles and help deliver the benefits of EV ownership to consumers.”
