Light Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Supply Equipment Program

Energy Services has launched a Light Duty Zero Emission Vehicle Supply Equipment Program to provide funding for a statewide Electric Vehicle Charging Station Network.  The program is funded in part by Michigan’s Volkswagen settlement allocation, of which up to 15% ($9.72 million) has been dedicated for this program.

Optimized EV Charger Placement Plan

Energy Services has taken steps to develop a DC fast charging network for worry-free electric vehicle (EV) travel throughout Michigan by 2030.  The project, driven by stakeholders, takes an analytical approach to optimizing placement of EV charging stations statewide with minimal investment cost and user delay.  

Visit the EV Charger Placement Plan for more information on stakeholder meetings, presentations, and findings.

  • Highways (Jan 2019)
    • Phase I finds optimal DC fast charger placement along Michigan highways.  This phase examines the bare-bones system required to support continuous EV travel in Michigan.
  • Full Tourism Analysis (Spring 2019)
    • Supplement I examines DC fast charging needs to support tourism in Michigan.
  • Economic Analysis (Spring 2019)
    • Supplemental II determines the economic development potential from DC fast chargers, as determined by the analyses above.
  • Select Cities (Fall 2019)
    • Phase II focuses on DC fast charger placement in select Michigan cities.  Together with Phase I, it will form a more comprehensive plan for DC fast charging placement in Michigan.

EV Readiness

Energy Services is working with townships, counties, cities and villages in the state to help them become EV ready, which is a “community-wide effort requiring planning, charging infrastructure policies, and support services” for EVs.
