Tesla Plans to Build At Least 7,500 Public Chargers in The U.S by 2025

Automotive and clean energy company, Tesla, has revealed plans to build at least 7,500 publicly accessible chargers in the U.S, available for use by any compatible Electric Vehicle by the end of 2024.

Until now in the US, Tesla Supercharging stations have only been accessible to drivers of its vehicles. Tesla’s commitment is coming as part of the effort from the U.S government to ensure that roads are filled with thousands of EV chargers by 2030.

An official at the company disclosed that the automaker has agreed to triple the number of Superchargers in its U.S. network, with new chargers that will be made in Buffalo, New York. Reports reveal that the company has been assembling some of its charging equipment at a facility in Buffalo that was originally intended as a solar panel factory.

The Biden administration wants to see at least 500,000 electric vehicle chargers on US roads by 2030, and announced a slate of initiatives to help make that a reality, including commitments from companies that build and operate charging networks like Ford, Tesla, ChargePoint, GM and others.

U.S president Joe Biden revealed that all these companies stand to reap the benefits of federal funding if their planned charging infrastructure projects meet new federal standards. He believes that these public charging stations will encourage Americans to buy more electric vehicles. 

Biden Administration officials also rolled out new minimum standards that chargers will have to meet to receive a share of $5 billion in electric vehicle charging grants.

In 2021, President Biden administration rolled out a $174 billion plan to spur the development and adoption of electric vehicles that includes money to retool factories and boost domestic supply of materials, tax incentives for EV buyers, and grant and incentive programs for charging infrastructure.

Last year, he announced the approval of a $900 million investment to install electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across 34 states and Puerto Rico.

The United States secretary of transportation Pete Buttigieg disclosed that Biden’s plan to build thousands of EV on the U.S roads, was necessitated to meet the climate crisis, by building public charging infrastructure powered by clean energy.

On his Twitter handle, he wrote,

To meet the climate crisis, we must put millions of new electric vehicles on America’s roads. It’s time to build public charging infrastructure powered by clean energy and make it available in all parts of this country.”

He further revealed that such a plan is going to take more than government support to successfully expand EV infrastructure, noting that it will require a mix of private-public partnerships that can involve local municipalities, businesses, and utility companies as well as automakers and an emerging group of EV charging companies.
