Install a Level 2 (240V) Electric Vehicle Charger at Home and Get a Rebate! logo

As part of Emerald’s efforts to promote clean and affordable electric transportation, Emerald People’s Utility District (Emerald) is offering the Electric Car Charger Rebate to encourage customers to charge their vehicles at homes throughout our service territory.

Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) provides charging through a 240 V AC plug. Level 2 adds about 10 to 60 miles of range to a vehicle per hour of charging time, making it far more convenient than standard 120 V AC charging, which adds about 2 to 5 miles per hour of charging. Additionally, level 2 charging is a more energy-efficient method of charging, as most EV have on-board components that require additional electricity the entire time the EV is plugged in.

  • Level 2 chargers are four to six times faster than using a standard home outlet.
  • More efficient charging than standard outlet (120V) charging.
  • Many units come with additional controls, such as timers and Wi-Fi connectivity, to help save you money if you're on Time-of-Use rates.
