New Maryland EVSE Rebate Program Effective on July 1, 2014

MEAlogoIn May 2014, the Maryland Electric Vehicles and Recharging Equipment-Rebates and Tax Credits bill (HB 1345/SB 908) was signed into law to provide incentives to expand the purchase of electric vehicles and recharging stations.

Through the program established by the bill, residents, governments and businesses can acquire a state rebate for purchasing and installing an electric vehicle charging station, also known as Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE).

In order to receive a rebate, eligible participants must apply with the Maryland Energy Administration (MEA) which will issue rebates on a first-come, first-served basis. The EVSE Rebate Program is for systems purchased and installed on or after July 1, 2014, but before June 30, 2017.

Full details on the EVSE Rebate Program and forms are available on the Maryland Energy Administration website.
