Get familiar with NEVI program: USDOT and PennDOT have resources related to NEVI program. Review and familiarize yourself with the NEVI program.  The Learn About NEVI webpage can help. 

​Put a team together: Consider developing your team for your NEVI grant application. Think about partners for owning the site, design, installation, operation & maintenance, vendors,  and others. 

Select site and assess site readiness: Review the interactive map to identify the priority interchange groups for installation of an EV station and begin preliminary site readiness assessments.  

Coordinate with Utilities: Communicate early and often with the local electric utility. PennDOT will release an updated Utility Form as part of the Round 1A Funding Opportunity program guidelines.
