The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has established a residential Electric Vehicle (EV) charging incentive pilot program to offset Level 2 (240v) EV charger hardware costs. This program will be available to residents within the SCAQMD’s four-county jurisdiction.
The program will provide an incentive to buy-down the cost of residential chargers, which typically range from $400-$800. The program will be implemented on a first come, first served basis and will provide up to $250 for the cost of hardware for Level 2 residential chargers.
An additional incentive of up to $250 will be available for low-income residents.
- Charger would need to be installed at a 240v outlet or by a licensed electrician if no 240V outlet exists.
- Charger would need to be in place for a minimum of three (3) years and would be considered a permanent, not temporary, installation.
- Installer would need to obtain any required city or county electrical permits for installation.
