Residential EV Charging Incentives:

Maine

Efficiency Maine is running a grant-funded program, the Future Grid Appliances Pilot, where a limited number of homeowners will be able to get a discount on qualifying smart appliances, in exchange for the ability to connect those appliances to a “Virtual Peaker” plant. The pilot is offering a $750 incentive for EV charging.

New Hampshire

New Hampshire Electric Co-op (NHEC) will provide rebates of $300 to residential members who install Level 2 EV charging stations in their service territory. Rebates will help offset the cost of installing a second electric meter that will record your EV charging usage, and let you take advantage of a low off-peak rate when charging your EV. Members who already have a Level 2 EV charger installed in Co-op service territory are also eligible for the $300 rebate if they sign up for off-peak charging. When you participate in this program, you’ll be able to charge your EV during off-peak hours at a rate that is lower than the basic residential rate.

Massachusetts

The Reading Municipal Light Department (RMLD) is offering a rebate on the purchase of a Level 2 charging station. Up to $500 for a networked, or “smart” charging station, and $100 for a non-networked station.

Multi-unit dwellings: The Massachusetts Electric Vehicle Incentive Program (MassEVIP) provides grants for 60% of the cost of Level 1 or Level 2 charging equipment installed at MUDs, up to $50,000. Eligible entities include private, public, or non-profit MUDs with ten or more residential units.

Eversource is offering to manage and cover all the related cost of the implementation of the infrastructure that will connect to their customers’ chargers. This includes, but is not limited to trenching, a transformer (if deemed necessary), a dedicated service meter, panel(s) and all conduits and necessary wiring to support the approved number of charging stations. Infrastructure for up to ten Level 2 chargers can be put in place. Customers cover the cost of purchasing and installing the charging station(s).

*** Eversource is also joining Nissan to offer customers a $5,000 rebate off the MSRP toward the purchase of a new 2018 Nissan LEAF through 4/1/2019 ***

National Grid’s Massachusetts Electric Transportation program will fund 100% of the electric service to new charging stations, and provide a rebate for the charging stations themselves. The Level 2 charging station rebate for a multi-unit dwelling is up to 75%.

Commercial EV Charging Incentives:

Maine

Efficiency Maine has announced it will be issuing an RFP for destination, public and commercial Level 2 charging hardware and installations. ReVision is awaiting details, but it will likely be a matching grant, with applications due sometime in June 2019.

A Climate to Thrive, located in the Downeast region, has funds available to pay for hardware and installation for publicly-accessible host sites. Contact ReVision Energy to discuss your location.
