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. The Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program provides rebates for Level 2 electric vehicle charging equipment.
Please note: Due to the turnover of the fiscal year, rebate applicants who apply between June 12 and July 10, 2018 may experience a longer than average processing time before receiving their rebate. Applications can still be submitted during this time, but may not be paid until after July 10.
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 Frequently Asked Questions.
