Biden’s $7.5 Billion EV Program Flops: Only Seven Stations Delivered!

Imagine cruising in your electric car on a cross-country journey, reassured by the presence of conveniently located charging stations tailored to any make or model of electric vehicle. What would you be willing to pay for such seamless convenience? Perhaps $19.99 seems like a bargain for this level of assurance and peace of mind.

These futuristic charging stations often come equipped with a small store, offering you something to do while your car charges up. Would you be willing to pay $29.99, $49.99, or even a hundred dollars for this bundled deal of charging and entertainment?

But wait, there’s an additional layer of allure! Someday, in the not-too-distant future, these charging stations could adorn our nation’s highways, catering to fleets of electric vehicles that may not be as prevalent as anticipated. However, this vision comes with a caveat—these chargers may not always be operational, adding an element of uncertainty to the equation.

Enter Presidentish Joe Biden’s trillion-dollar “infrastructure” law, which earmarked $7.5 billion for a network of 500,000 EV charging stations by 2030. While this ambitious initiative sounds promising, the reality is less impressive. Months after the law’s enactment, only one charging station was operational, located near a freeway in Ohio.

Fast forward to today, and the progress of Biden’s EV charging station program has been modest at best. A recent report indicates that we now have seven stations spread across four states—an average of about one billion dollars per station, a stark contrast to the initial projections.

The sluggish rollout of these stations can be attributed to various factors, including stringent standards for new EV chargers, permitting challenges, and significant power demands. Contrary to popular belief, electricity doesn’t magically appear in the charging cable, necessitating careful planning and infrastructure development.

While the playful format of this discussion may evoke memories of old-school infomercials, the underlying message highlights the disparity between promises and delivery in large-scale infrastructure projects. In the end, the success of such initiatives hinges on effective execution and overcoming practical challenges, making them more than just lofty ambitions on paper.
