We Energies today announced it has joined the National Electric Highway Coalition, which merges the Electric Highway Coalition and the Midwest Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Collaboration, a group We Energies previously joined. The National Electric Highway Coalition currently consists of 50 investor-owned electric companies, one electric cooperative and the Tennessee Valley Authority. The coalition is committed to providing electric vehicle (EV) fast charging ports that will allow the public to drive EVs with confidence along major U.S. travel corridors by the end of 2023.
Beyond this program, We Energies and its parent company, WEC Energy Group, are making significant investments in EV charging. The company currently has 50 EV charging ports available for public use, and We Energies recently received approval for pilot programs to help residential and business customers install EV charging systems at their homes and businesses.
