Electric Vehicle Charger Rebates Coming Soon

Register today for the July 15 webinar

The California Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Project (CALeVIP) is bringing electric vehicle charger incentives to Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and Ventura counties in late July. Businesses, commercial properties, multifamily residences, and local government facilities will be eligible to apply for incentives for the purchase and installation of new electric vehicle infrastructure.

The program is funded by a combination of local funds and California Energy Commission funds. In Santa Barbara County, nearly $5 million will be available to fund a mix of Level 2 and DC fast chargers. Eligible applicants may receive up to $80,000 per DC fast charger and up to $6,000 per Level 2 connector.

The program operates on a first-come, first-served basis, and rebates are expected to go quickly. In many areas of California where the program has already been implemented, the millions in funds have been claimed within hours of the program launch. With the launch date quickly approaching, join an upcoming webinar to learn how to apply for a new rebate to help cover EV charging equipment and installation costs. All interested parties are encouraged to start working with eligible vendors to prepare application materials.
