Grants for EV Charging at Multi-Family Housing
The ability to charge at home is vital for any EV owner, so if you live in an apartment or other multi-family housing, it’s unlikely you have at-home charging options. In an effort to bridge this gap, the EV Make-Ready program will offer approximately $20 million in grants for Make-Ready Infrastructure. These grants help cover the significant up-front costs of installing EV charging, such as system upgrades, trenching, and cabling. These types of grants are crucial for multi-family housing developments that rarely offer EV charging to residents due to these hefty costs.
Portions of the Make-Ready grants will also be used to electrify the Utah Inland Port project as well as the Point of the Mountain development. Rocky Mountain Power has committed to working with both of these entities to plan our their distribution systems and maximize the benefits from increased electrification of our transportation sector.
Tax Credits for At Home EV Charging
Electric Vehicle Charging for Low-Income and Rural Households
The 30% tax credit “Alternative Fuel Refueling Property Credit” applies toward the costs of qualified electric vehicle charging equipment in certain communities until January 1, 2033.
- Certain low-income and non-urban communities are eligible for a tax credit of 30% up to $1,000 of home EV charging equipment
- Applies to “bidirectional” charging equipment which can charge an electric vehicle and discharge electricity to the grid. (Most vehicles aren’t capable of this at this time. The Nissan Leaf is able to discharge to the grid.)
