ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS
There’s no better time than now to get EV ready!
Hawai`i Energy, in partnership with Ulupono Initiative, is providing an exciting pilot incentive program to encourage EV Charging Station installations at commercial buildings throughout our state.
Rebate amount: Up to $5,000 per station, now until June 30, 2019.
(Terms & conditions apply. See below and read the application for full details.)
Limited time offer, first-come first-served basis. Expires on June 30, 2019 or while funding lasts. Apply now!
Eligible workplaces or multi-unit residential dwellings can receive rebates of $5,000 each for each new installation and $1,500 each for retrofitting from single- to dual-port Level 2 EV Charging Stations with network connectivity.
How Do I Start?
Pick an approved CEA contractor. Then the contractor will take the following three steps:
- Assess: First, the contractor will visit your building to assess the site and its infrastructure. The contractor will then provide a proposal on the EV Charging Station installation at your site.
- Order: Once the assessment is complete and you approve the project, the contractor will order the charging station that will suit your needs.
- Install: Your new EV Charging Station will be installed and you must submit all required documentation along with your incentive application to demonstrate completed installation by June 30, 2019.
Why Install A Station At Your Facility?
- Add value to your property: As EVs become more mainstream, having a place to charge during the day offers convenience for employees and tenants and can increase the appeal and value of your properties.
- Commitment to sustainability: Demonstrate your company’s commitment to environmentally friendly practices and attract visitors and tenants who are like-minded!
- Revenue generation: Charging stations can also provide revenue to help you offset maintenance costs or generate income.
Who Can Apply?
All applicants must at least:
- Be a commercial customer of the Hawaiian Electric family of utilities (HECO, HELCO, and MECO) and the owner and/or landlord of a workplace or multi-unit dwelling in the City & County of Honolulu, Hawai`i County or Maui County.
- Have the legal authority to have a charging station installed in the designated parking area.
- Purchase and install the charging station by June 30, 2019.
