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.

What is the Southern California Incentive Project (SCIP)?

Funded by the California Energy Commission and implemented by the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE), the Southern California Incentive Project (SCIP) promotes access to electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure.

Rebates up to $70,000 per DC fast charger (DCFC) installation are available for new sites and installation sites with stub-outs. Rebates up to $40,000 per DCFC installation are available for replacement and make-ready sites. For sites in disadvantaged communities (DACs), eligible rebates are up to $80,000 per DC fast charger regardless of installation site type.

Final rebate amounts are determined by the total eligible projects costs. Rebates for non-DAC applications are calculated up to $70,000 per DCFC or 75% of total project cost, whichever is less. For DAC applications, rebates are calculated up to $80,000 per DCFC or 80% of total project cost, whichever is less.
