2023 Participant Milestones: MnDOT

2023 Participant Milestones Spotlight: Minnesota Department of Transportation’s Journey
In the spotlight for their remarkable achievements throughout 2023, our participant the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) stands as a model of progress in the area of environmental sustainability. This year, MnDOT has not only expanded its fleet by adding 5-10 electric vehicles (EVs) but also led several educational initiatives to bolster EV adoption across the state. Through engaging events like EV Test Drives, Lunch & Learns, and informative Webinars, MnDOT has showcased an unwavering commitment to advancing green technology and fostering a sense of community involvement.
The journey towards a greener Minnesota reached an important moment with MnDOT’s proactive step to issue a request for proposals aimed at third parties interested in building and operating 18 Direct Current (DC) Fast Charging stations. Strategically placed along two Alternative Fuel Corridors, these stations are set to change the EV charging landscape, making electric vehicle travel more accessible and convenient for everyone.
MnDOT’s achievements are not just about enhancing infrastructure but also about laying the foundation for a sustainable future. Their efforts in educating the workforce and assessing the state’s EV infrastructure have positioned Minnesota as a leader in the nationwide push towards environmental sustainability.
