Sidney Selected for EV Charging Stations

Governor Mike DeWine, along with Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) Director Jack Marchbanks, DriveOhio Executive Director Preeti Choudhary, and Federal Highway Administration Deputy Administrator Andrew Rogers, recently announced that more than $18 million in funds will be awarded for 27 new electric vehicle fast-charging stations as part of the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Program.

The stations will be found along seven of Ohio’s interstate corridors, including I-70, I-71, I-74, I-17, I-76, I-77, and I-90. The EV charging station in Sidney will be located at Exit 92 (State Route 47) at the EVGo Services/Sidney Towne Center. Each site will include at least four charger ports with 150 kilowatts for each port and will be accessible 24/7 with easy access to food, drink, and restrooms.

Ohio was the first state in the nation to release a request for charging station proposals last year, which was a strategic move to put Ohio ahead of other states for sought-after equipment and specialized technicians to install the stations. This fall, ODOT will issue its second request for proposals to install an additional 16 charging stations along Ohio’s major U.S. and state routes.  

The city is very excited to have been selected in Round One of the Governor’s new initiative. NEVI and Drive Ohio will serve as a catalyst in deliberately placing electronic vehicle charging stations locations throughout Ohio to better serve the future electric vehicle marketplace. This coincides with the city’s diverse economy, which has deep roots within automobiles, and the future supply chain of the EV world.
