The Maryland Energy Administration is working with Marylanders to expand the State’s growing electric vehicle recharging infrastructure through the Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment Rebate Program 2.0.
Through the program, residents, governments and businesses can acquire a state rebate for purchasing or 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-come, first-served basis.
The EVSE Rebate Program 2.0 provides funding assistance for costs incurred acquiring or installing qualified electric vehicle supply equipment on or after July 1, 2017, but before June 30, 2020. Applications must be received by MEA within 6 months of the date that the equipment or install expenses were incurred.
The EVSE Rebate Program 2.0 is a new program unique and separate from previous funding opportunities, established by legislation under the Clean Cars Act of 2017. As such, funding mechanisms established under previous programs will not impact this new program. EVSE equipment or installation costs incurred prior to July 1, 2017, along with applications submitted to previous funding programs, are ineligible for funding under the EVSE Rebate Program 2.0.
