Rebates to Delaware nonprofit organizations, businesses, government agencies, and individual residents to defray the cost of purchasing electric vehicle charging stations. The purpose of this program is to incentivize the use of electric vehicles in the state, thus reducing reliance on foreign oil and improving air quality.
The purpose of the Electric Vehicle Charging Station Rebate Program is to provide incentives for Delaware residents, businesses, and workplaces to purchase AC Level 2 electric vehicle charging equipment (EVSE) to encourage the deployment of electric vehicles throughout the state. This program is aligned with Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector.
Rebates are available for AC Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (EVSEs) for residential, commercial, and workplace locations. Level 1, Level 3, and DC Fast charging stations are not eligible under this program.
Eligible applicants for the workplace EVSE rebates include employers with 15 or more employees in a non-residential place of business.
Charging Station Eligibility:
This rebate is towards the physical charging station only. Only Level 2 Charging Stations are eligible for a rebate. AC Level 2 chargers provide electricity to the Electric Vehicle by 240 volts (typical in residential applications) or 208 volts (typical in commercial applications). Level 2 chargers require the installation of a charging station and require a dedicated circuit of 20-100 amperes.
