Whether you drive an EV or a plug-in hybrid, getting a quicker charger at home is a practical method to guarantee you do have enough range to get to where you want to go. As more and more people transition to EVs, a growing number of cities, states, provinces, and utilities across the country and across the world are offering considerable home charging incentives to EV drivers in order to encourage EV adoption and wise energy usage.
Level 2 Charger Rebate
Many EV owners charge their cars at home using Level 1 chargers, which involves putting the car’s connection into a conventional wall socket. This may seem convenient, but it may not be quick enough to allow you to repeatedly make excursions in a day or to recharge your battery after a long journey. Switching to a Level 2 charger will allow you to charge overnight regardless of what vehicle you drive, as well as top off in between errands. When you can get a rebate for a speedier Level 2 charger, charging at home becomes even more economical and convenient.
Home EV Charger Incentives
The majority of home incentives are rebates for the charging station i.e., hardware costs, installation fees, etc. Only a Level 2 EV charging station can provide up to 25 miles of range per hour or the construction of a 240-volt circuit will often be covered by rebates.
Rebates are usually not available for a slower Level 1 charger. The charger is frequently required to be installed by an electrician in order to qualify for a rebate. A federal tax credit of 30% of the cost of installing a home or commercial)EV charger is also available, up to $1,000 for residential charging. Make sure to include the credit form with your tax credit for installing an electric vehicle charging station.
