Fairfax County Officials Look To Buy More Electric Vehicles

Fairfax County officials are looking to buy more electric vehicles (EVs) for the county’s fleet, increase the number of publicly accessible charging stations at governmental sites and implement fees to recover costs and keep drivers from dawdling in those spots. According to wtop.com, "A $1 trillion infrastructure bill recently signed by President Biden authorized a nationwide network of EV-charging stations and allotted $5 billion to help states build them, said Susan Hafeli, deputy director of the county’s Office of Environmental and Energy Coordination, told the Board of Supervisors’ Environmental Committee Dec. 14. Supervisors in 2018 approved an Operational Energy Strategy that envisioned an accelerated transition to electric vehicles and the use of 100-percent non-carbon-emitting fuels for county fleet vehicles by 2030." As per wtop.com, "The plan seeks to have Level 2 EV-charging stations, which typically can fully charge a vehicle within four to six hours, installed at up to 20 major governmental facilities in the county. Supervisors so far have authorized slightly more than $3 million for the EV-charging-stations initiative and approved a contract with ChargePoint for the installations. The vendor must maintain the stations or lose transaction fees if sites are inoperable, Hafeli said."
