What is the South Central Coast Incentive Project?

Funded by the California Energy Commission and implemented by the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE), the South Central Coast Incentive Project promotes access to electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure by providing rebates for Level 2 (L2) and DC Fast Chargers (DCFC).

Eligible DCFC rebates range from $30,000 to $80,000 per charger or 75% of eligible project costs, whichever is less. DCFC rebate amounts are based on DCFC power level and if the site is in a disadvantaged community (DAC) or low-income community (LIC).

Eligible L2 rebates start with a base rebate amount of $3,500/connector and additional funds are available for qualified sites: an additional $2,000/connector for multi-unit dwelling sites and an additional $500/connector for DAC or LIC sites.

Final rebate amounts are determined by the total eligible project costs.
