Choose Your Rebate Option

Option 1 — Independent Charging Station Rebate

Choose this option if you plan to manage your own charging stations. Independent station owners can set their own energy pricing and can choose to run their stations on their own or partner with other 3rd party networks.

For this option, station owners pay for all 3rd party network fees incurred. Independent station owners can also elect to install non-communicating station(s) and/or set no energy pricing. There is a higher rebate incentive for OCPP (Open Charge Point Protocol) compliant stations.

The Independent EV Charging Station Rebate may be the best choice for some EV charging scenarios like fleet services.

Independent EV Charging Station Rebate
Charging Station Type Rebate Amount
Level 1 (L1) Up to $700 per bank of L1
Level 2 (L2) and up Up to $1,500 per OCPP-compliant station
Up to $1,200 per non-OCPP station
