PEPCO Public Charging Make-Ready Program by PEPCO – DC

March 24, 2024

Program Overview:

  • This is a make-ready program offered by PEPCO to offset the costs of installing the electrical infrastructure needed to support EV charging stations.
  • It covers 100% of the make-ready costs, which include things like trenching, conductors, transformers, panels, etc. to provide the necessary electrical service capacity.
  • However, it does not cover the costs of the EV charging equipment itself, installation labor for the chargers, networking fees, or ongoing operational costs.


  • The program is open to commercial, multifamily, and public entities looking to host new EV charging stations in PEPCO’s service territory in the District of Columbia.
  • For Level 2 and DCFC stations, a maximum of 5 Level 2 or 4 DCFC chargers are allowed per site location under this program.
  • All charging stations must be networked and able to track and report usage data.
