Rebates continue through June 30, 2018

The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Energy & Climate encourages businesses, nonprofit organizations and local governments to take advantage of the opportunity to install electric vehicle charging stations for employees’ use through the Delaware Workplace Charging Program.

Participants can receive rebates and technical guidance for the installation of electric vehicle charging stations.

Organizations that opt to fuel electrically by installing charging stations can receive rebates for as many as six charging stations. Rebates cover 75 percent of the cost of charging equipment, up to $5,000 per rebate.

Workplace charging opens opportunities for electric fleet vehicles, which have lower fueling and maintenance costs than their gasoline counterparts.

In the past two years, DNREC’s Clean Transportation Incentive Program has provided 465 rebates for electric vehicles and 120 rebates for residential and commercial charging stations to Delawareans in all three counties.

The Delaware Workplace Charging Program is open through June 30, 2018.
