Understanding the Different Types of EV Charger Rebate Programs

Aug. 10, 2023
BriteSwitch breaks down the different types of EV charger rebates.

According to BriteSwitch, a firm specializing in capturing local, utility, state, and federal rebates/incentives for businesses, interest in electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) has skyrocketed over the past couple of years, and many in the electrical industry have embraced this rapidly growing segment. Rebates and incentives are integral to the EV chargers' sales process. However, navigating through the nearly 500 active rebate programs in North America can be challenging for contractors, distributors, and manufacturers.

Unlike traditional energy efficiency rebates, which have been around for decades and are well established, EVSE rebates are relatively new and not as standardized. As a result, contractors and distributors who have successfully used rebates to increase sales in the past are finding it much harder to utilize EV charger incentives. Understanding the different types of rebates and how they work can help improve the utilization of these programs.
