The State of New Jersey will work to increase the number of PEVs and related infrastructure to meet the following state goals:

  • 10% of new buses purchased by the New Jersey Transit Corporation must be zero emission vehicles (ZEV) by December 31, 2024. Then 50% of new buses must be ZEV by December 31, 2026, and 100% must be ZEV by December 31, 2032.
  • By December 31, 2025, there must be 400 direct current (DC) fast EVSE and 1,000 Level 2 EVSE installed and available for public use at minimally 200 locations. 75 locations must include at least two DC fast installed along travel corridors, while 100 locations must include at least two DC fast in community locations. Additionally, 15% of all multi-family residential properties must include EVSE infrastructure and 20% of all franchised overnight lodging must have EVSE available for guests.
  • By December 31, 2035, there will be 2 million registered light-duty PEVs in the state, and 100% of state-owned, non-emergency light-duty vehicles must be PEVs.
  • By December 31, 2040, 85% of all new light-duty vehicles sold in the state will be PEVs.

The New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (NJBPU) must establish goals for transportation electrification and infrastructure development for medium- and heavy-duty on-road diesel vehicles and charging infrastructure by December 31, 2020. For more information, see the NJBPU Electric Vehicle Incentive Programs website.

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) develops and implements a public education program regarding the availability and benefits of PEVs, state PEV goals, and the availability of PEV and EVSE incentives.

NJDEP and NJBPU must prepare and submit a report to the governor and legislature every five years on the state of the PEV market in New Jersey, progress towards achieving the above goals, barriers to the achievement of the goals, and recommendations for legislative or regulatory action to address barriers.
