Delaware Now Offers $2,200 EV Rebate + $500 EVSE Incentive

AUG 8 2015 BY STATIK 12


We are pleased to report that Delaware initiated its own “Clean Vehicle Rebate Program” in July that sees new plug-in purchases receive rebates of $2,200 and $500 to buy and install charging equipment.

Unlike some programs which have certain kWh or emissions thresholds, Delaware’s $2,200 rebate program is open to any vehicle that is “able to accept an electric charge from an outside source (i.e. an EV charging station) which powers an internal battery in the vehicle,” so regardless if you are driving a Volt, a LEAF, or a Prius PHV, the full rebate is available.

The state even left some money on the table for conversions, as a rebate of $1,100 is available retrofitting cars that previously ran on petrol into a “dedicated electric vehicle”.

$330,000 has been set aside for initial funding of the program.

“The bottom line is, more of these vehicles on our roadways will benefit Delawareans with cleaner air, decreased emissions from gasoline-powered vehicles and reduced long-term environmental and health impacts” – David Small, secretary of the Department of Natural Resources (via Delaware Online)

As for the $500 EVSE program, the guidelines are as follows:

New Level 1 (I) or Level 2 (II) charger: up to $500 towards the purchase of electric vehicle charging equipment at a commercial or residential location.

Rebates are limited to five chargers per fleet and limited to one charger rebate per person.

We do have to note that the EVSE program is open to any resident, business or government agency in the state, and only $50,000 has been initially set aside for funding.  Those looking to take advantage of this rebate should probably act quickly.

To qualify for the rebate in Delaware the vehicle must have a plug, so I’m assuming the hydrogen vehicles will not qualify. Which is a good thing.

I am just waiting for a Mirai Delaware spec. It comes with a 10 watt charger for the 10V lead acid battery as standard!

Too bad that all states will not do incentives for EVs. Tesla has proven vehicles can be electric and not small. All conservative representatives need to be told vehicles need to be EV. We do not need anymore polluting oil. The Senate voted 98 to 1 that climate change is for real and not a hoax. Rick Perry is a conservative but drives a Tesla. Please call your representatives and tell them we need EVs more than ever. The middle east countries do not need anymore of our money

The Senate voting 98 to 1 does not prove anything. Come on, they’re politicians ! They don’t really believe in what they are voting for…

Are you implying that you need state incentives to buy new Teslas? I think it makes more sense to fund public charging infrastructure to get people seeing locations to charge and make the decision to buy an EV. There are thousands if not tens of thousands of Millionaires in Delaware due to the banking industry there. I don’t think the state needs rebates more than it needs education. Lots of people can afford an EV in the state – mostly in the Middletown north to Wilmington zone.

“able to accept an electric charge from an outside source (i.e. an EV charging station) which powers an internal battery in the vehicle,”

All cars has an internal battery that is able to accept an electric charge from an outside source. I wonder who the first to try to get the money after buying a regular ICE will be.

It’s great that they are recognizing conversion cars in their program, but let’s be honest; the conversion should get 4x as much rebate as the 20 AER PHEV buyer. Not only are they driving pure EV, but they also took an old gas burner off the road at the same time.

$500 for the installation of an EVSE is also quite generous. Several products are available for around $400, namely, the 30 amp cheapie GE Durastation (not the old expensive heavy-duty Durastation), and the 15 amp $379 Clipper Creek products which are fine for all GM models.

Anyone know if there are any installation restrictions, or can you install it yourself and, in effect, get your EVSE purchased and installaed totally by the State of Delaware?

Its an even better value since you still get a 30% FEDERAL tax credit, for EVSE installaton, as far as I know.
