Twenty-five new electric vehicle (EV) charging locations will be installed in Consumers Energy’s service territory in Michigan, thanks to federal investments that are helping to fuel growth in public EV-charging infrastructure.

More than 40 fast-charging EV locations—from Traverse City to Flint to Jackson—were recently selected to receive nearly $23 million in federal funding under the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program created by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Consumers Energy, a member of the National Electric Highway Coalition, already has helped to install 54 fast-charging sites and more than 230 other public charging locations throughout its service territory.

“Consumers Energy is powering Michigan’s electric vehicle transformation by offering solutions that make EV driving convenient and affordable,” said Lauren Snyder, Consumers Energy’s vice president of customer experience. “Our support for public charging is improving the EV driving experience, giving people confidence they can power up quickly and affordably anytime they hit the road in Michigan.”
