City in Oregon Offers $100 Incentive On Residential Charging Stations
The city of Ashland, Oregon has made it official to offer a $100 incentive to those who install residential plug-in vehicle chargers in new homes under construction.
The purpose of this incentive is obviously to drive up electric vehicle use by making new home plug-in vehicle ready.
Since the typical residential chargers costs ~$500, the $100 incentive is actually quite substantial.
As Daily Tidings reports:
“The $100 incentive is available when a home is built to Earth Advantage or ENERGY STAR program standards.”
“Homes built under those programs are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than regular homes and can include various features, such as increased insulation, insulating windows, tight duct work and energy-efficient appliances and lighting.”
