ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGING STATION INSTALLATION

Attention Orange businesses! Show off your sustainability and attract new customers. Adding electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to your place of business can increase the amount of time customers spend at your location and may even serve as a new revenue stream.

Business and plaza owners interested in installing EV Charging Stations should take advantage of the incentives offered by United Illuminating before they are gone by applying to their Make-Ready Program. Businesses can now install EV charging stations with up to 100% reimbursement of costs for the electrical improvements needed to support EV charging and up to 50% reimbursement of installed electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE).
