The good news is that there are tax incentives and grants available at the federal and state levels to help offset the cost of installation.
The federal government offers a tax credit for consumers who purchase and install qualified EV charging stations at their homes or businesses. The credit covers 30% of the cost of the installation, up to a maximum of $1,000 for residential installations and $30,000 for commercial installations. To qualify, the charging station must be Level 2, which provides faster charging than Level 1 charging stations.
In addition to the tax credit, businesses can also take advantage of the Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS) to depreciate the cost of the charging station over time. Businesses can deduct 100% of the cost in the first year if the charging station is installed between September 27, 2017, and December 31, 2022.
Many states also offer tax incentives and grants to encourage the installation of EV charging stations. Here are a few examples:
