Biden Burns Billions on Failing EV Charger Fantasy

President Joe Biden has once again set his sights on pushing his extreme climate agenda, this time with a grand plan to create a whopping 500,000 electric vehicle (EV) chargers across the nation by 2030. However, despite funneling $5 billion of hard-earned taxpayer cash into the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program, only a handful of states have stepped up to the plate. It seems like the majority of the country is not so keen on bending to Biden’s will when it comes to ditching their trusty gas-powered vehicles.

The White House’s push for readily available charging ports is a central piece of Biden’s crusade to coerce drivers into abandoning their beloved gasoline-powered cars and trucks – whether they like it or not. Former President Donald Trump didn’t hold back, dismissing Biden’s electric vehicle mandate proposal as “preposterous” and warning of its potential to enrich China while wreaking havoc on the American auto industry.

The urgency of this endeavor was supposedly ramped up as the Biden administration revealed bold new automobile emissions standards, touting them as the most ambitious plan ever to slash pollution from passenger vehicles. But let’s be real here – the demand for EVs and plug-in hybrids is just not hitting the mark that Biden had hoped for.

In a bid to make the national charging station rollout a reality, the Biden administration dished out a hefty $623 million in grants to various states, local governments, and tribes. These grants are set to fund 47 EV charging stations and related projects in 22 states and Puerto Rico, including 7,500 charging ports. However, despite this investment, there’s still a glaring lack of enthusiasm from consumers to make the switch to electric vehicles.

Critics of the government’s plan are quick to point out that aiming for 500,000 public chargers just won’t cut it if Biden truly wants to meet his ambitious climate goals. The Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory even estimated that the U.S. will need a staggering 1.2 million public chargers by 2030 to keep up with the EV demand. That’s a massive leap from the current 175,000 public charging ports available. The reality is that the EV market is an ever-competitive one, and many Americans simply aren’t sold on the idea.

In a recent poll, it was revealed that only about four in 10 U.S. adults are even somewhat likely to make the switch to an EV, signaling that the country’s infatuation with gas-driven vehicles is far from over. Despite offering tax credits of up to $7,500 to purchase a new EV, convincing drivers to bid farewell to their beloved gas-guzzlers for vehicles without tailpipe emissions is proving to be a tough sell.

The bottom line? Biden’s grand plan for a national network of EV chargers is facing an uphill battle. Despite the administration’s fervent efforts, it seems like the American people aren’t ready to embrace this radical change, and the reality is that the EV market may not be as charged up as Biden would like to believe.
