The Delaware Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program
Electric Vehicle Charging Stations purchased between Nov. 1, 2016 and June 30, 2018
NOTE: Due to the end of the 2017 fiscal year, the State of Delaware is unable to release rebate payments from June 13 through July 10. DNREC still encourages you to submit rebates for vehicles during this time, but to be aware that payment may be delayed and take longer than the typical 6-8 week processing time.
The purpose of the Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program is to provide incentives for Delawareans and Delaware based businesses towards the purchase of Level 2 electric vehicle charging equipment. This program is aligned with Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector, reducing greenhouse gases, and improving Delaware’s air quality.
This program compliments the Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate program, which provides rebates for electric, propane, and natural gasoline vehicles.
