Public EV Charging Stations
Stowe Electric is offering a rebate for Level 2 or Level 3 DC Fast Charging (DCFC) EV charging stations that are installed at a workplace, public building or parking lot, or commercial location and available for customers, visitors, and public users.
Level 2 EV charging stations are eligible for a $250 rebate per charger for multifamily homes or $500 per charger for workplace or public chargers accessible to the public, employees, or visitors.
Level 3 DCFC stations are eligible for a $1,000 rebate per charger (maximum of $2,000 per year per customer) if the stations are available to public users and connected to a network with an operation and maintenance portal and/or fee-based portal. These stations can limit public charging to a defined time-period during normal business hours and after-hours.
If you are a commercial customer or property owner interested in offering publicly available chargers or networked chargers under Stowe Electric’s charging infrastructure turnkey partnership program, then please contact Stowe Electric for eligibility and additional incentives.
EV CHARGING INFO AND RESOURCES
LEVEL 1 (120 VOLTS)
A charger that uses standard 120-volt outlet
Typically, won't require modifications to your electric panels or home wiring.
Speak with an electrician to confirm that your home's electrical panel is at least 15 or 20-amp
Most plug-in hybrid EVs take 4 - 6 hours to fully charge.
An all-battery electric vehicle takes 12 - 24 hours to fully charge.
LEVEL 2 (240 VOLTS)
A charger can increase the charge power 2-4 times and decreases the typical full charge time for an all-battery electric vehicle to 4 -8 hours.
Will likely require a new dedicated circuit from the electric panel to a wall location near the EV parking spot.
Please consult with a licensed electrician to verify that your home has a two-pole 30 to 50-amp electrical circuit breaker panel and Stowe Electric to verify that an upgraded service is not needed.
