VW EVCS PROGRAM

 

 

As part of the Volkswagen settlement, Electrify America is administering the $2 billion for the National Zero Emission Vehicle Investment Plan. There is an opportunity to provide input for Electrify America’s cycle 3 ZEV investments at: https://www.electrifyamerica.com/submissions/. The deadline for submissions is August 14, 2020. We would like to encourage everyone to make submissions nominating locations in South Dakota for consideration.

Please feel free to pass on this information to any agencies that may be interested. Here's hoping the more input they receive from the state, the more likely we will be considered.

 

DENR Announces Round One of the VW EVCS Program

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) announces Round One of the Volkswagen (VW) Electric Vehicle Charging Station (EVCS) Program. Currently there is approximately $406,000 of Volkswagen trust funds available for electric vehicle infrastructure.

The primary goal of South Dakota’s VW Environmental Mitigation Trust Program is to facilitate the improvement and protection of the ambient air quality throughout South Dakota. DENR is seeking eligible applicants to install light-duty electric vehicle charging stations (EVCS). The rebate program provides funding on a reimbursement basis. Applicants will receive reimbursement up to 80% for charging stations installed at locations across South Dakota accessible and available to the general public.
