Rebates & Incentives

Rebates and Incentives (Charging)

Want to save even more from driving an EV by paying less than a dollar a gallon equivalent* for all your electric driving? People’s (Electric) and ENE are partnering to bring you this valuable EV rewards program open to People’s  customers. Earn financial rewards by agreeing to charge up your EV only overnight and on weekends. Simply set your car to charge between 8 pm and 12 pm on weekdays, and still charge any time on weekends. Then complete the enrollment process to start earning free EV miles. 

You are eligible to participate if you:

  • Own or lease an EV, either a battery electric vehicle (BEV) that runs exclusively on electricity, or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) that runs on electricity but can also switch to gas/electric hybrid mode
  • Have a People’s (Electric) residential electric account that you use to charge your EV

Residents charging at either Level 1 or Level 2 may participate in the program.

Maximum enrollment is limited to 2 EVs per household.

*$1 per gallon of gasoline equivalent is based on comparable electric vehicle and gasoline vehicle efficiencies and long term residential electric rates and consumer gasoline prices. Individual charging costs and fuel savings will vary depending on driving habits and vehicles compared.

People’s (Electric) is offering EV owners a rebate of up to $1,000 to help offset the cost of installing some or all components of a Level 2 system for higher speed charging of an electric vehicle at home.  Customers must first enroll in People’s Drives Electric’s EV off-peak charging rewards program described above. A Level 2 charging system consists of a 240 volt wiring circuit from your house electrical panel to a NEMA 14-50 outlet or to a home EV charging station.

The rebate may be used to pay for a licensed electrician’s services and electrical charging equipment, in order to install one or more of the following charging system components: (1) a 240 volt wiring circuit with a 50 amp circuit breaker, (2) a NEMA 14-50 240V outlet, (3) a Level 2 home charging station. The rebate provided will be up to $1,000 or the amount of documented, eligible charging system expenditures, whichever is less.

To claim your rebate, contact us after you enroll in the EV rewards program and have purchased and installed your Level 2 charging equipment.
