Overview

The National Electric Highway Coalition (NEHC) is a collaboration among electric companies that are committed to providing electric vehicle (EV) fast charging stations that will allow the public to drive EVs with confidence along major U.S. travel corridors by the end of 2023. The NEHC is the largest such alliance of electric companies that have organized around the common goal of deploying EV fast charging infrastructure to support the growing number of EVs and to help ensure that the transition to EVs is seamless for drivers.

To date, EEI’s member companies have invested nearly $3.7 billion in customer programs and projects to deploy charging infrastructure and to accelerate electric transportation. As EV sales continue to grow, EEI estimates that we will need 140,000 EV fast charging ports, a more than ten-fold increase over today, to support the more than 26 million EVs projected to be on U.S. roads in 2030.

National Electric Highway Coalition Members

The National Electric Highway Coalition currently consists of more than 60 investor-owned and municipal electric companies and electric cooperatives. Current coalition member companies collectively serve more than 120 million U.S. electric customers across 48 states and the District of Columbia.
