PECO Level 2 Commercial Electric Vehicle Charging Pilot


CSE administered a utility-sponsored pilot project that provides rebates to offset the cost of installing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at commercial locations in southeastern Pennsylvania. 

Sponsored by PECO Energy Company, the program offered rebates of up to $2,000 per charging port or 50% of make-ready costs associated with Level 2 EV charger installations. An additional $1,000 per port or 75% of make-ready costs was available for projects within designated environmental justice areas. Make-ready costs include ensuring a safe electrical connection from the property’s meter to the EV charging location, but not the charger equipment.
