AMP Increases Cash Amounts for Electric Vehicle Charger Rebates
ALAMEDA, CA – Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) is increasing its cash rebates for electric vehicle (EV) drivers who install charging stations at their homes. The new incentives are part of an overall initiative to make driving electric vehicles a more viable choice for Alamedans and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Under the new residential charger rebate program available on July 1, Alamedans can receive a rebate of up to $800 toward the purchase of a level 2 charger and any electric upgrades and permitting needed to install the charger. That’s up from the $500 rebate that AMP currently provides.
AMP has also increased its electric vehicle charger rebates for businesses, multifamily dwellings, and public agencies. When non-residential customers purchase level 2 chargers for the workplace, their residents or for their customers, they are now eligible for up to a $5,000 rebate per charger -- up from $3,000 -- to be applied toward the cost of the charger and related expenses for electric upgrades and permitting.
AMP funds the rebates through low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS) funds. The state’s LCFS program aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions and promote clean fuels and electric vehicles.Visit the Alameda Municipal Power homepage for more information on AMP’s electric vehicle charger rebates.For more information on AMP’s electric vehicle charger rebates, view the rebates page.
