The White House has rolled out new rules demanding companies to be Buy America compliant for federal funding, and the EV charging industry is no exception. Buy America standards dictate that steel, iron, and the entire manufacturing process of products, including EV chargers, must be US-made.

These regulations aim to boost job opportunities and secure stable supply chains, lessons learned during the turbulence of the COVID-19 pandemic. Upholding Buy America is crucial, especially for projects like the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Program, set to enhance the nation’s EV charging network.

President Biden’s ambitious plan to establish 500,000 EV chargers nationwide and shift 50% of new car sales to EVs by 2030 aligns perfectly with the Buy America concept. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law injecting billions into EV charging, clean transportation, and battery components solidifies the US’s commitment to this green transition.

Further, the EPA is pushing automakers to cut greenhouse gas emissions, forecasting a surge in electric vehicle adoption. This aligns with Biden’s vision of 60-67% electric vehicle sales by 2032.

The heart of the matter lies in well-paying jobs and the journey to net-zero emissions by 2050. Buy America safeguards these jobs in the US, securing a resilient, localized workforce.

So, why does this matter?

Being Buy America compliant means companies are investing in US communities, fueling long-term job and economic growth. It ensures that our government’s investments, funded by taxpayers, benefit local communities and the national economy.
