We recognize that EV charger installations require coordination across multiple organizations, which may be impacted by closures or reduced capacity due to COVID-19 concerns. If you anticipate delays beyond your project’s expiration date due to these issues, please contact us. Extensions will be granted on a case by case basis.

How do I apply for a rebate?

Follow this process to apply for a rebate.

  1. Visit Find a Project and select the incentive project you are interested in.
  2. On the incentive project page, view the eligibility requirements and application process information. When you are ready to start the process, click “Apply Now.”  
  3. Apply online prior to purchasing or installing EV chargers.
  4. CSE reviews your application and confirms your eligibility. 
  5. Rebate funds are reserved for your rebate. CSE sends you a Funds Reserved email, and you have a required timeframe from the Funds Reserved date to complete your installation project.
  6. Purchase and install the eligible EV chargers. 
  7. Submit your installation documents online within the required timeframe.
  8. CSE reviews your application and follows up via email if anything is missing or incomplete.
  9. CSE determines your final rebate amount based on your eligible project costs. 
  10. Once complete, your application is approved and funding is granted. 

Depending on the incentive project you apply for, you may receive your rebate in one or more payments. For example, the Fresno County Incentive Project (FCIP) issues a single rebate check within 15 days of application approval.
