Wrangling over renewables: Counties push back on Newsom administration usurping local control
By 2030, Minnesota wants 20% of all light-duty vehicles on its roads to be electric. But a lot of charging stations are needed to help achieve that goal, and clean-energy advocates say there's positive movement in that direction.
Supporters of electric vehicles, or EV's, point to Xcel Energy's new proposal, which involves adding 750 high-speed charging stations, as a big step in building up the region's capacity. Along with commitments from other utilities there's also $68 million from the federal infrastructure law to help add locations.
