We offer rebates to lower the cost of electric vehicle charging stations that can be installed at your home, at your workplace, outside your businesses, and in other public places.
This program 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. For more information, see our Frequently Asked Questions.
The Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program provides rebates for Level 2 electric vehicle charging equipment.
Residential properties: The rebate is 50% of the cost of the charging station (maximum rebate amount per charging station is $500).
Commercial properties: Each rebate is 75% of the cost of the charging station (maximum rebate amount per charging station is $2,500).
Workplaces: Each rebate is 75% of the cost of the charging station (maximum rebate amount per charging station is $5,000).
