Capital News Illinois Talks With State EV Coordinator Megha Lakhchaura

Last Friday, Capital News Illinois discussed the state’s CEJA (Climate and Equitable Jobs Act) electrification push with the Illinois Electric Vehicles (EV) Coordinator Megha Lakhchaura. The legislation aims to put one million electric vehicles on Illinois roads by the end of the decade, a tall order that involves dispersing a lot of funding into electric vehicle infrastructure. So far in 2022, nearly 9,000 EVs have been added to state roads already, bringing the total number licensed in Illinois to 46,645 as of July 15th. To incentivize consumers and bring down costs, Illinois is offering electric vehicle buyers a $4,000 rebate. The application window runs from July 1st to September 30th, and low-income buyers will receive priority.
