Electric Vehicle Charging Station Plan


In 2021, the Rhode Island General Assembly passed bills H5031/S0994, which direct the Department of Transportation (RIDOT), the Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV), and the Office of Energy Resources (OER) to “develop, no later than January 1, 2022, a plan for a statewide electric vehicle charging station infrastructure in order to make such electric vehicle charging stations more accessible to the public.”

RIDOT, DMV, and OER, along with the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM), are collaborating to develop this plan. This webpage will be updated with materials, including opportunities for public participation throughout the remainder of 2021. Please check back for more information.
