As you look to begin or expand your business’s EV charging projects, utilities should be the first call you make before you apply for other grants. Utilities can be a great resource to help support your project, from helping you find the proper incentives for your business goals, site feasibility and site selection, rebates for charging equipment and installation, to fleet advisory services, and more.
This panel will discuss:
- How to find out which types of rebates and incentives may be available
- How available incentives and rebates may change depending on various factors and the scope of your project
- How businesses can best leverage utilities as a partner to ensure project success
- Project pitfalls that a utility partner can help you avoid when it comes to funding
