The New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES) and the Granite State Clean Cities Coalition announce the availability of rebates to support the new installation of new electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) in New Hampshire.
The rebate program is designed to support development of EVSE at strategic locations to enable operation of EVs throughout New Hampshire and connect to charging corridors in neighboring states. Targeted areas of deployment include Interstate highways and other major transportation corridors, as well as key destinations such as tourist attractions, large retail centers and large employment centers.
Rebates will first be offered (through April 3, 2015) for installation of “DC fast chargers” on Interstate 93 south of Interstate 89. The maximum rebate for DC fast chargers is $12,000. The rebate program will be available for “Level 2” charging equipment (up to $5,000) at other strategic locations thereafter. Charging stations must be publicly accessible at all times. All rebates must be pre-approved and are subject to certain eligibility criteria. Qualifying proposals will be evaluated in the order in which they are received.
Funding for the rebate program is through the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning using US Department of Energy funds. A total of $49,000 is available for fiscal years 2015 and 2016.
