EV Ready program incentives
Your site may qualify for one or more incentives from different programs. The technical assistance process will provide more detail on incentive levels and site eligibility to maximize the amount of incentive your project could receive. Apply for technical assistance below:
If you have a workplace location and are interested in installing Level 2 ports, the California Electric Vehicle Incentive Project will likely be the best incentive program for your project (see CALeVIP Peninsula-Silicon Valley Project below).
Peninsula Clean Energy EV charger incentives
Peninsula Clean Energy offers incentives for multi-unit dwellings, affordable housing projects, public agencies, and workplaces for Level 1 and Level 2 charging. Learn more about which type of EV charger is best for your property at About EV Charging.
Additional incentives supporting Level 2 ports facilitated by Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits are available to public agencies and workplaces. Interested applicants are required to enroll and participate in the Technical Assistance Program to be considered eligible for the incentives.
Program funding is capped at $1,500,000 for projects at existing market rate properties with more Level 2 charging ports than Level 1. Please refer to the table below for specific project caps.
Eligibility: To determine if your site is eligible for incentives, please review the Peninsula Clean Energy EV Charger Incentives Program Standards and Requirements.
