Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebates



DNREC offers rebates to lower the cost of electric vehicle charging stations that can be installed at your workplace, outside your businesses and in other public places.

This program, which has been extended through June 30, 2021, is part of Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector, reducing greenhouse gases, and improving Delaware’s air quality. It supports the Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate Program.

How Much are the Rebates?

The Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program provides rebates for Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations purchased between Jan. 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021.

Four types of charging stations are eligible:

  • Public Access: Charging stations that are open to the public, such as retail centers, park and rides, hospitals, schools and universities, downtown areas, parking garages, hotels, parks and destinations and attractions.
  • Workplace: Employers in a non-residential place of business.
  • Fleet: Charging stations for fleet vehicles only and not available to the public.
  • Multi-family: Properties with four or more residential units, such as condos, apartments and townhomes.

Rebates for residential charging stations are no longer offered under the Clean Vehicle Incentive Program.

Refer to the Rebate Program Description and Guidance for the full list of eligibility requirements.

The rebate amount is for the cost of the charging station only. The maximum rebate amounts are $3,500 for single port and $7,000 for dual port.
