Matzie Questions Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

Pa. state Rep. Robert Matzie learned a great deal about the infrastructure plans in place for EVs or Electric Vehicles during a House Democratic Policy Committee public hearing. In the next ten to 15 years, he says EVs could be the only type of new car people buy. He wants to use skilled labor unions and workers to build up to 4,300 fast-charging stations across the state by 2026, putting the infrastructure in place to provide accessibility to everyone who needs it. At the hearing, Matzie asked about electric vehicle infrastructure across the Commonwealth. As Democratic Chairman of the House Consumer Affairs Committee, Matzie is concerned about consumers taking on the cost of charging stations that they may never use. Matzie also asked about the skilled workforce needed to install electric vehicle infrastructure across Pa. and how this would affect the current electrical grid.
