Increasing EV Charging Access in Southeastern Pennsylvania

The Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) was selected to administer a new utility program providing rebates to offset the cost of installing electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure at workplaces, stores, multiunit dwellings and other sites in southeastern Pennsylvania.

PECO’s Level 2 (L2) Commercial Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Pilot rebate program is part of $1.5 million in EV charging infrastructure incentives to support commercial, industrial and public transit customers interested in clean transportation options.

  • Projects located within the company’s service territory are eligible to receive up to $2,000 per charging port or 50 percent of eligible make-ready costs, up to a maximum of 20 ports. Make-ready costs include work necessary to ensure a safe electrical connection from the meter to the EV charging infrastructure (not including the cost of charging equipment).
  • The rebate is increased up to $3,000 per port or 75 percent of make-ready costs for projects located within Environmental Justice Areas, as defined by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.
  • All commercial and industrial customers are eligible, regardless of their retail electricity supplier.

“We’re excited to work on this important program to build out new EV charging infrastructure, accelerate equitable EV adoption and make it more convenient to drive electric,” said CSE Senior Director of Transportation Programs Mark Bielecki.
