Maine

EV Incentives

Efficiency Maine Trust offers a point of sale rebate ($2,000 for BEVs/$1,000 for PHEVs) with larger discounts to agencies, tribes and low-income residents. This can effectively offset the purchase and installation of a Level 2 EV charger for your home.

ReVision Energy and CMP customers are eligible for a $5,000 rebate off of a Nissan LEAF, or $2,500 rebate off of a Nissan LEAF PLUS.

New Hampshire

New Hampshire Electric Co-op (NHEC) will provide rebates of $300 to residential members who install Level 2 EV charging stations in their service territory. Rebates will help offset the cost of installing a second electric meter that will record your EV charging usage, and let you take advantage of a low off-peak rate when charging your EV. Members who already have a Level 2 EV charger installed in Co-op service territory are also eligible for the $300 rebate if they sign up for off-peak charging. When you participate in this program, you’ll be able to charge your EV during off-peak hours at a rate that is lower than the basic residential rate.

EV Incentives

NHEC also offers a $600 rebate for PHEVs and $1000 for BEVs.
