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.
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.
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.

Grants for EV charging equipment are now available. Please visit Funding Opportunities for information on the program, incentives and timeline.
