EV Charger Rebate

Local CC EV Charging

Central Coast residents can take advantage of the Electrify Your Ride program offered by Central Coast Communities Energy (3CE) and receive up to $2,400 back for a Level 2 charger and installation. This rebate does not require you to currently own an EV but allows you to be Electrification Ready” for a future purchase. 

Once approved, applicants receive their rebate reimbursement within 45 days meaning the entire EV charger and installation costs may be nothing out of pocket! In some instances, extra conduit distance, main panel upgrades or subpanel installations may accrue additional costs which would be disclosed ahead of time. 

Residential EV Charger Rebate

Already own an EV? Great! Photon Brothers will install a Level 2 charger (either a Tesla Wall Connector or J‑1772) that is compatible with your car. If you have already purchased your EV charger our team can assist you with receiving a rebate for it.

Rebate Amount:

  • Level 2 Charger: $400
  • Wiring & installation (including up to 50 feet of conduit run): $2,000
