EV Make Ready 

Program Changes Effective September 1, 2023

The following program changes are now in effect and apply to all projects that are new or not previously pre-approved. For previously pre-approved projects, close out requirements will be in effect immediately. 

Incentive Models
For DCFC projects, on top of the Lease Model being available for all Applicants, which covers both Customer-Side Make Ready (CSMR) and Utility-Side Make Ready (USMR), we will offer the option of USMR Coverage Only. Under this model, the EV Make Ready Program would cover only the USMR costs for a project and the Applicant would be responsible for all CSMR costs.  

Incentive Caps for Level 2
Any Level 2 projects that propose the minimum number of two (2) ports, will only be eligible for the maximum incentive of $20,000 or less. For projects that have 3 or more ports, the maximum incentive will be $30,000 or less. Existing applications that have been pre-approved, will be honored at the previous incentive caps and rules. All other applications currently incomplete or not yet submitted will be subject to these new incentive caps. 

  • Two ports; $20,000 or less
  • Three or more ports; $30,000 or less

Incentive Caps for DCFC

There have been no changes made to DCFC incentive caps.
