Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer’s EV charging plans expand to 5 Midwest states

Looks like Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s Lake Michigan EV Circuit could turn into a regional affair. The planned EV Circuit, announced last week, will be a web of DC fast chargers on the state’s 1,058-mile-long tourism-heavy corridor along the shores of the eponymous Great Lake. But wait, there’s more. On September 30, Whitmer and four other governors signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding to create REV Midwest, the Regional Electric Vehicle Midwest Coalition, as a unified initiative to build out charging infrastructure throughout the region. The other four project collaborators are Illinois Gov. Jay Pritzker, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz and Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers.
