Utility EV Charging Incentives & Grants

With the growth of residential and commercial solar and increased energy efficiency of appliances and consumer electronics, electric vehicles are one of the few opportunities for electric utility growth.

The challenge to EV adoption is not a lack of electric vehicles, but rather convenient access to charging across all communities.

— Tom Kuhn, CEO Edison Electric Institute

Types of incentives and programs that utilities typically offer, include:

  • Make Ready Programs: Utility pays for or provides electrical infrastructure for free.
  • Rebates: Rebates available for qualified chargers.
  • Time of Use Rates: Reduced electricity rates if you charge during specific time frames (e.g., overnight).
  • Advisory Services: Free consulting to help businesses navigate the charger deployment process.
