The goal is to build 100 million EV charging stations!

What are the Benefits?

Businesses that install new EV charger equipment can receive a tax credit of about 30% (with specific eligibility requirements). The tax credit per property item is a maximum of $100,000 per EV charger for business installation projects completed after 2022. Residential EV chargers can cost as little as $200 to over $1,000. Therefore installing an EV charger can receive a tax credit of 30% or up to $1,000 for hardware and installation costs.
