New England EV Charging Incentives

Investing in Electric Vehicles (EV) and EV charging is a great way for your town, business, or organization to save money and enjoy the benefits of renewable energy systems. Thanks to a variety of government tax credits, rebates, and utility programs offered in Maine, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire, installing EV charging infrastructure is more affordable than ever.

Businesses can take advantage of US federal EV charging tax credits for commercial customers, which offer your organization 30% of the cost of charging hardware and infrastructure installation costs, capped at $100k. We are awaiting additional guidance from the Treasury to better clarify the eligibility of projects for the full credit. 

The federal EV tax credit for manufacturers offers a tax credit of up to $7,500, depending on battery size with a minimum of 7 kilowatt hours. Additional guidelines will be released early 2023. Previously owned electric vehicles (also known as “used vehicles”) are eligible for a tax credit of up to $4,000. All vehicles must be made by a qualified manufacturer.

There are also a number of state specific incentives as well:
