CASPER, Wyo. — The Wyoming Department of Transportation said on April 30 that people can respond to a survey gauging Wyomingites’ desire to add electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure through May 12.
“The interest captured in this survey will be used to develop a proposal for federal financial assistance to expand EV infrastructure in Wyoming,” WYDOT said.
The survey asks some multiple choice questions such as the following:
- Would you be interested in owning and/or operating the electric vehicle charging station?
- What type of charging infrastructure are you interested in?
- Is your organization interested in investing in electric vehicle charging stations?
- Are you willing to contribute to the total investment cost of electric vehicle charging infrastructure?
The survey notes that electric vehicle charging stations with two 150kW chargers would have a total cost of $270,000-$365,000.
“EV charging hardware will be $150,000 – $200,000. Utility upgrades will be $44,000 – $69,000,” the survey states. “Installation will be $76,000 – $96,000.”
The survey asks further questions and gives people the chance to provide written comment. People can take the survey online.
The survey was put together by the following organizations:
- Wyoming Energy Authority
- Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality
- Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities
