Funding Status Update as of October 4, 2023

For the FY24 EVSE Rebate Program,  72% of the funds allocated for Residential EVSE applications and 72% of the funds allocated for Commercial EVSE applications have been requested.​

Application Processing Expectations: The EVSE Rebate Program is experiencing a high volume of activity due to high popularity.  As a result, there will be a delay in the processing of new EVSE applications and responding to inbox messages, including Virtru-enabled email requests. Our team is responding to emails in the order that they are received as quickly as possible; duplicate email requests for Virtru will result in additional delays in response. We appreciate your patience in this matter.

Program Purpose: The EVSE Rebate Program aims to reduce the financial burden of acquiring and installing charging stations, and increase EV adoption in support of the state’s EV deployment and greenhouse gas (GHG) reduction goals.​

Program Description: The Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Rebate Program provides funding assistance for eligible costs incurred acquiring and installing qualified EV supply equipment, also referred to as charging stations.

Program Budget: The total amount of funding currently available for the fiscal year 2024 (FY24) rebate program is $2.5M.  

  • $1.5M of funding has been initially allocated for residential EVSE applications, and $1.0M has been initially allocated for commercial EVSE applications.
  • After April 1, 2024, these initial funding allocation limits will be removed. Any FY24 applications not yet processed due to the initial funding allocations being exhausted will then be processed, up to the available overall FY24 budget for the entire EVSE Rebate Program.

*These rebate amounts apply to applications received on or after July 1, 2023. Rebate amounts for applications received prior to July 1, 2023, can be found in the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) posted under Program Documents.

  • To help ensure EVSE incentives are directed to a more permanent build-out of EVSE infrastructure, EVSE rebates will no longer be issued to Level 1 EVSE purchased on or after October 1, 2023.
  • While all multi-unit developments (MUDs) are eligible for the FY24 EVSE Rebate Program, MEA is currently investigating options to provide additional benefits for EVSE installations in MUDs within low-to-moderate-income, overburdened, and/or underserved communities.

Type of Program: Rebate; Non-competitive (first-come, first-served) until program funds are exhausted.
