Given the increasing number of battery electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles coming to market, and the Biden administration’s focus on building out a nationwide publicly accessible EV charging network, dealers are looking for information on federal, state, and local level incentives to assist with the purchase and installation of EV chargers. The resources referenced below touch on incentives for commercial facilities (like dealerships), for public charging, and for at-home chargers:

  • Federal Law Incentives: Included in this list of federal EV and charging incentives is the Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Tax Credit for commercial and at-home alternative fueling facilities, including EV charging stations purchased and installed by December 31, 2021. For commercial EV charging, the credit was for up to 30% of the cost, not to exceed $30,000, and up to $1,000 for at-home chargers. Congress is considering legislation to reauthorize this tax credit (or a modified version of it).
  • State Law Incentives: Use this tool to look-up state-specific EV and charging infrastructure incentives.
  • Contact your Clean Cities or dealership association for information on other EV or EV charging infrastructure incentives.
