Level 2 EVSE Rebate Program

The Level 2 Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Reimbursement Rebate Program provides rebates for the installation of Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations and is open to government, private, and non-profit entities across the state on a “first-come, first-serve” basis. (Level 2 stations can charge electric vehicles in eight hours or less using a 240-volt output.)

This State Environmental Mitigation Trust, funded by the Volkswagen Settlement, begins with $215,563 for 2022. E&E has developed a tracker, so all interested parties can keep a close eye on the changing “balance.”
