Federal Agencies No Longer Required to Review Effects of Certain Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment on Historic Properties

Tuesday, November 1, 2022 - 9:30am

The Advisory Council on Historic Preservation (ACHP) will publish an announcement in Wednesday’s Federal Register instituting an exemption for federal agencies to review the effects of certain electrical vehicle supply equipment on historic properties. The exemption from Section 106 is in response to two 2021 executive orders to prioritize clean energy vehicles, as well as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021, which appropriated $550 billion for new infrastructure investments related to electric vehicles. The exemption does not apply on Tribal Lands unless the tribe provides written notification to the ACHP that it agrees with the use of the exemption on its lands. The exemption will be retroactive to Oct. 26.
