CHARGER INCENTIVES

DEEP is committed to encouraging the use of EVs by supporting the development of EV infrastructure in Connecticut. Funds are made available for municipalities, state agencies and private businesses to install EV chargers, that significantly reduce the cost of the initial cost of these chargers.

DEEP is offering a competitive funding opportunity for municipalities and state agencies to purchase EVs and/or to purchase and install EV charging stations at municipal and state agency facilities.

Utilizing funds made available through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI), DEEP will provide a reimbursement of up to $15,000 per vehicle and up to $10,000 per charger meeting the program guidance specifications, with a maximum of six EVs and chargers per grant recipient. These funds may also be designated for the installation of EV charging stations for use by employees and others - up to $10,000 for one dual-head or two single-head charging stations will be made available without the purchase of an EV. A town or agency that owns a commuter parking lot or other parking area where its employees or the public are allowed to park for 10 hours per day or longer, is eligible to obtain funding up to $2,000 for the purchase and installation of a two-outlet Level 1 EV charging station at that lot.

The overall goal for this program is to promote EV use by increasing the number of EVs in public fleets and by establishing more EV charging stations throughout Connecticut. DEEP will consider the cost effectiveness, the potential for timely completion and operation, and the overall economic benefits to Connecticut when selecting proposals for awards.
