ND-electric Vehicle Stations Settlement

Volkswagen settlement, in part, funds charging stations


The Associated Press - January 21, 2020

BISMARCK, N.D. - Ten North Dakota communities will use part of a settlement with Volkswagen to build electric vehicle charging stations.

The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality will send $2.7 million to the local governments and businesses for clean vehicle projects, including 17 charging stations statewide.

The Bismarck Tribune says all but one are fast chargers which can charge vehicles in about 30 minutes. Just 187 electric vehicles are registered in the state, and North Dakota has no fast chargers.

North Dakota was awarded about $8 million through the 2016 Volkswagen settlement between the federal government and the auto manufacturer, which admitted that it programmed some of its diesel vehicles to cheat on emissions tests.
