EV program recharging for another year

OPPD’s popular electric vehicle rebate program is back for a third year.

Historically, the program has had a measurable impact on adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in the OPPD service territory. The rebates have sold out every year.

This year, the rebates for residential electric vehicles and chargers are still available. A fleet vehicle replacement rebate for businesses is new this year. EV fleet rebates are rare in the national market, but OPPD is leading the way by making these rebates available to business customers.

Commercial rebates are identical to the current rebate offered to customers who purchase an EV or charging station. A $2,500 rebate is available after the purchase of a new EV and purchase, installation and registration of a ChargePoint Home charging station. There is also a $500 rebate option for customers who only purchase the ChargePoint charger.

Business rebates

Rebates are available for business customers who replace a current fleet vehicle with a new all-electric vehicle:

  • Fleet Car/charger combo rebates available – 36
  • Charger only rebates available – 20

Residential rebates

Similar to pervious years, rebates remain available for residential customers that purchase a new all-electric vehicle:

  • Car/charger combo rebates available – 93
  • Charger only rebates available – 113
