Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is offering rebates for electric vehicle charging stations for residents, businesses, and public agencies that are AMP customers. Businesses can apply for a rebate of up to $3,000 on Level 2 chargers for the workplace or their customers. A receipt must be dated after October 16, 2017.
Pacific Gas & Electric’s (PG&E) EV Charge Network is a three-year program, starting January 2018, to install 7,500 electric vehicle chargers at multifamily housing and workplaces. PG&E covers the cost of make-ready and installation, which is typically 60-80% of the total project cost. Program participants have the option to own the chargers, partially paid for by PG&E, as well as choose the charging equipment from an approved vendor list, which includes ChargePoint. The program requires a minimum of 10 EV parking spaces per site.
The Southern California Incentive Project (SCIP) offers rebates up to $70,000 per DC fast charger for installations at new sites and up to $40,000 per DC fast charging for installations at replacement and make-ready sites. Installations in designated disadvantaged communities (DACs) are eligible for rebates up to $80,000 per DC fast charger regardless of installation site type. Applications for this first-come, first-served rebate opportunity will be accepted until rebate funds have been exhausted.

Why Go Solar?
When it comes to combining solar energy with your business operation, think of solar as an investment that actually provides a return. A custom designed solar PV system or solar thermal hot water heating system will reduce your operating expenses, protect you from volatile utility costs, show your commitment to the environment and the green business movement, and can even increase the reliability of your electrical system.
