Charging Your EV

Learn about how you can qualify for a home charger and the different types of chargers that can be used with Plug-In Hybrid, Battery, and Fuel Cell electric vehicles.

CCFA offers up to $2,000 in additional funding for a Level 2 home charger for your new, used, or leased plug-in hybrid (PHEV) or battery electric vehicle (BEV). Grantees who are unable to install a Level 2 home charger may be eligible in the future for a Level 2 portable charger or a $500 public charging card (this offering is currently under development). Funding is available on a first come first served basis and is subject to availability. Grantees have 90 days to submit a reimbursement request for a completed installation and must follow all of the program requirements in order to maintain eligibility for the incentive. Find out more by downloading the Home Charging Manual

There are three main types of chargers available: Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 (or DC Fast). The right charger for you will depend on your vehicle and where you live and drive. If you choose a Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicle, refueling your car is actually very similar to fueling a gasoline or diesel vehicle, with only slight differences. Learn more.
