The Biden administration plans to spend $5 billion over five years to install chargers for electric vehicles, mostly along interstate highways, in an effort to jump-start acceptance of the vehicles. 

Another $2.5 billion will be doled out in competitive grants focused on rural and underserved communities, according to a joint announcement by the departments of Transportation and Energy. The money is coming from the bipartisan infrastructure bill passed by Congress in November.
