Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Rebate Program

​​ATTENTION: Be advised that as of March 30, 2016 the allotted funds for the EVSE Rebate program for Fiscal Year 2016 are depleted. MEA will continue to accept applications for the EVSE Rebate program until the end of Fiscal Year 2016, and will be placed on a waiting list. Rebates will resume in July 2016, for applications meeting all requirements.

MEA is working with Marylanders to expand the State's growing electric vehicle recharging infrastructure through the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Rebate Program.

Through the program, residents, governments and businesses can acquire a state rebate for purchasing and installing an electric vehicle charging station, known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE). In order to receive these rebates, eligible participants must apply with MEA, which will issue rebates on a first-c​ome, first-served basis.

The EVSE Rebate Program is for systems purchased and installed on or after July 1, 2014, but before June 30, 2017.
