BGE’s EVsmart Program offers $300 rebates for residential customers who install a smart charger. It also helps Maryland meet its goal of having 300,000 zero-emission vehicles on the road by 2025 to improve air quality and Chesapeake Bay health.
Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining ground every day and BGE’s new EVsmart program makes it even easier for customers to go electric.
EVsmart offers two types of rebates for customers who install smart EV charging equipment:
- RESIDENTIAL – $300 rebate for qualifying BGE residential customers who install an approved Level 2 smart charger at their single-family home.
- MULTIFAMILY PROPERTY – Up to $25,000 in incentives for qualifying multifamily property managers/owners or homeowner associations that install approved Level 2 smart chargers or DC Fast Chargers.
To apply, customers should visit bge.com/electricvehicles. This online resource also provides online savings calculators comparing EVs to gasoline-powered cars in terms of fuel and commute costs, carbon impacts and more. It also provides easily accessible information on EV incentives and promotions offered by federal and state programs.
In addition, BGE will operate a new EV charging network starting this fall. EV drivers will be able to charge their vehicles at 500 BGE chargers throughout our service area when the network is completed. The number and location of chargers will provide drivers flexibility and the ability to travel in Maryland without worry that they will run out of power.
EVsmart is a joint program launched by Exelon’s Maryland utilities: BGE, Delmarva Power, and Pepco.
