Electric Transportation and Charging Programs
Don’t follow – be an environmental leader. Partner with us to install new electric vehicle (EV) Level 2 or direct current fast charging (“DCFC”) stations or take advantage of our DCFC station incentive program.
We can help you save money by defraying the cost to install the charging stations, funding 100% of the electrical infrastructure for approved projects and rebates for some charging station equipment installations. See Figure 1.
Figure 1: Installation of Charging Stations
By providing charging stations and educating your employees, tenants, and customers you will be positioned at the top of the pack, as an environmental leader committed to environmental sustainability.
- We help you with costs by funding, for approved projects, up to 100 percent of the electrical infrastructure and charging station equipment costs.
- We help you select charging station equipment by providing a list of qualified Level 2 and DCFC charging station equipment for you to choose from

New, publicly accessible* DC fast chargers (DCFC) greater than 50 kW for electric vehicles are eligible for an annual incentive from National Grid. If a station is composed of more than one plug, each plug which can simultaneously dispense power with other plugs is eligible to earn an incentive. The incentive declines over time and is payable annually. Up to 300 plugs will be eligible to earn the incentive in National Grid’s upstate New York Service territory.
Eligible plugs earn an incentive for every year which they are eligible between 2019 and 2025. To become eligible, a station must complete their application for service, including the payment for any applicable infrastructure upgrades, known as the CIAC (Contribution in-aid of construction). After a full year of operation, each
The minimum criteria for a participating standardized plug is 62.5 kw. A plug capable of charging from 62.5 kW to 74 kW shall receive the 60% incentive. At co-located stations, any plug capable of charging two vehicles simultaneous at 75 kW or greater shall receive the full incentive. At least two standardized plugs between 62.5 kW and 74 kW must be present to establish eligibility for the incentives. The opportunity to seek incentives under the mixed tier option ceases three years from the date of this order (March 19, 2023).
No single station developer or operator may seek incentives for installation of greater than 50 percent of the plugs per utility service area.
The incentive schedule is given below.
|Year||Plugs > 75kW||Plugs
50kW - 74kW
If a station’s delivery bill is less than the total incentive for which it is eligible, it may roll over unused incentive funding into future years with certain limitations. The rolled over incentive quantity may be added to the eligible incentive quantity through 2021. From 2021 to 2022 the
