Why Hybrid or Electric
Vehicles are a Good Choice:
If you purchase a battery electric vehicle, you are eligible to receive a free Level 2 changing station installed in your home by our partners at GRID Alternatives. The only requirement to be eligible for a charging station is that you purchase a battery electric vehicle with a Clean Vehicle Assistance Program grant. At this time, plug in hybrid vehicles are not eligible for charging station grants. Learn more about Charging Stations.
