East Central Energy (ECE) offers a rebate program specifically designed for commercial Level 2 EV chargers. This initiative is part of an ongoing effort to support the adoption of electric vehicles by providing financial incentives for the installation of EV charging infrastructure.

Key Features of the Rebate Program:

  • Eligibility: The rebate is available for public, workplace, multifamily, or fleet charging stations.
  • Rebate Amount: Eligible parties can receive the lesser of $1,000 per charger or 50% of the total project cost.
  • Cap: The total rebate amount is capped at $25,000 per project.
  • Exclusions: Pay-for-use applications are not eligible for this rebate. However, DCFC (Direct Current Fast Charger) installations may qualify for a custom rebate.
  • Program Status and Timeline: The program is currently open and is set to end on November 8, 2024. Prospective applicants must secure pre-approval before proceeding with installation.

Recent Changes and Program History:

  • January 24, 2024: The incentive was reduced from $2,500 to $1,000 per charger.
  • November 8, 2023: The rebate program was temporarily closed but reopened on January 24, 2024.

How to Apply:

  1. Contact ECE: Before starting any installation, it is necessary to contact East Central Energy to discuss the project and ensure it meets all program criteria.
  2. Pre-Approval: Obtain pre-approval from ECE to ensure that your project is eligible for the rebate.
  3. Installation and Documentation: After approval, proceed with the installation. Keep all relevant receipts and documentation, as these will be required for rebate processing.

Tips for Maximizing Your Rebate:

  • Plan Your Project Carefully: Given the cap of $25,000 and the requirement that the rebate cannot exceed 50% of project costs, it’s beneficial to plan your project budget to maximize the rebate amount.
  • Early Application: Due to the funding limit and potential changes in the rebate amount, applying early in the program cycle is advisable to secure the best incentive.
