(WKBN) – As Lordstown Motors gears up to start making electric pick-up trucks, the state wants to make sure those vehicles can be charged.
“DriveOhio” finished a study and has now released a statewide strategy for electric vehicles.
The key recommendation is to have charging stations available every 50 miles along interstate, state and U.S. routes in Ohio.
Right now, $3.5 million is available in grants to install chargers in 10 Ohio counties, including Mahoning and Trumbull.
The application process for those grants will start on Wednesday.
