Charging Station Incentives

Incentives including grants, loans, rebates, tax credits, and free installation services are available from four main source types:

  • Federal: With passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill and other federal programs, at least $7.5 billion will be available for EV charging infrastructure programs.
  • State: Many states offer incentives for EV purchases, though many also offer charging infrastructure grants and will disperse funds from the federal infrastructure program.
  • Local/Regional: Cities, regional governments and air quality management boards frequently provide EV infrastructure grants.
  • Utility: Utilities are a major source of EV charging incentives from “make-ready” programs to charging hardware rebates.
