Currently there are over 40 models of electric vehicles (EVs) on the market in the United States, a number that is expected to grow as demand continues to increase. Government incentives are available for some models for both new and used EVs. The number of electric vehicles is expected to reach 18 million by 2030.To help facilitate the adoption of electric vehicles the Jamestown BPU is offering rebates on level 2 chargers to commercial and industrial customers in our service territory.
Industrial customers should call Customer Service to request information on the EV charger incentives.
