A new electric vehicle charging station is being built in Boardman, Ohio, with state funding

BOARDMAN, Ohio (WKBN) – Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced the state will award nearly $16 million to install more electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations along interstates and other roads.

Along US-224 in Boardman, a new electric vehicle charging station will be installed at the Tiffany Plaza shopping center. Construction is expected to begin in late 2024 and 2025.

Funding for electric vehicle chargers is being awarded as part of the second round of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) programme. Ohio was the first state in the nation to activate a NEVI charging station as part of this program.

NEVI funding will be matched by more than $4 million from private companies selected to install and operate the new electric vehicle charging stations.

The addition of these 22 new stations brings Ohio closer to its goal of locating fast chargers every 50 miles throughout the state. Each site will be no more than one mile from a highway and will include four charging ports with at least 150 kilowatts of power available per port. The state also hopes to add restrooms and stores to these sites.
