EV Charger Rebates in NY, PA, OH & VT
It’s estimated that by 2025, 25% of vehicle sales will be electric. Your business can get ahead of the curve by installing an EV charging station.

EV Make-Ready Program
New York state’s $5 million electric vehicle charging station rebate program is designed to promote installations at private and public venues. Managed by the state’s Energy Research and Development Authority, the “Make-Ready Program” applies to office buildings, multi-family apartment buildings, malls, parks, theaters, retail locations, and more.
Incentives are available for Level 2 or Direct Current Fast Charging (CDFC) chargers. Highlights of the program include:
- Up to $4,000 in rebates through the Charge NY initiative per charging port for employers, building owners, non-profits, and municipalities that install Level 2 charging stations.
- Incentives that offset a large portion of the infrastructure costs associated with preparing an EV charger installation site. In some cases, the costs are covered entirely.
- The EV charging station construction must have started by July 16, 2020.
Lastly, to ensure maximum accessibility, the chargers eligible for the incentives must be used without requiring a paid membership in a charging station network.

EV Charging FAQs
Is an EV charger tax deductible?
Businesses enjoy a federal tax credit for EV charger hardware and installation costs. The credit covers 30% of the charges, with a maximum of $30,000 credit for commercial installs, including retail businesses and multi-family dwellings.
Why should a business install EV chargers?
As electric vehicles become more affordable and widespread, investing in an EV charging station can help your business attract customers, employees, and investors. It’s always a great way to exhibit environmental stewardship, encourage customer loyalty, and build a customer base for related businesses.
Why is EV infrastructure important?
Although EV sales in the U.S. have climbed more than 40% each year since 2016, nearly half of consumers say battery or charging issues are a concern when deciding to buy an EV. Experts say the nation’s limited charging station network likely discourages prospective buyers. Supported by funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the aim is to install a half-million public charges nationwide by 2030 to meet zero-emission goals.
