Granholm blames ‘poor judgment’ after staff blocked off EV charger for her

  • Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm faced Republican scrutiny for various controversies, including her oversight of rising gasoline prices and her ownership of stocks. She acknowledged poor judgment in using a gas-powered car to reserve a spot at an electric vehicle charging station.
  • Republicans accused DOE of diverting funds from fusion energy development to renewable energy programs and failing to prioritize climate law funding. Granholm defended the department's actions and stated that strict guardrails have been implemented for awards and grants.
  • Granholm addressed the need for more reliable and available charging infrastructure for electric vehicles and announced $100 million in federal funding to repair and replace nonoperational EV chargers. She emphasized that rising gas prices were due to the global oil market and that refilling the reserve would depend on favorable economics.
