When funds are released, the $1.2-trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), which was signed into law on Nov. 15, 2021, stands to drive an extraordinary amount of business to the electrical industry. Of that total, $550 billion will be slotted for infrastructure projects over the next five years.
Targeting many segments of revitalization efforts, the money will go toward many sectors, including: roads and bridges ($110 billion); passenger and freight rail ($66 billion); transportation safety ($11 billion); public transit ($39 billion); ports and waterways ($17 billion); and airports ($25 billion). Then there's the $7.5 billion earmarked specifically for electric vehicle (EV) charging.
