NJ’s Electric Vehicle Workplace Charging Grants
Employees spend one-third of their day with their car sitting in the parking lot while working. This makes workplaces ideal locations for electric vehicle owners to charge throughout the workday. The Charging Pyramid on the bottom right shows the places electric vehicle drivers charge the most and the commonly used charging infrastructure.
The Workplace Charging Grant Program provides grants to employers to offset the cost of purchasing and installing electric vehicle charging stations. This program is designed to support and encourage employees to purchase and drive electric vehicles to work, which reduces vehicle emissions.
Upon completion of work in accordance with the eligibility criteria, NJDEP will reimburse each applicant as follows:
- Up to $250 per Level 1 charging station; and
- Up to $5,000 per Level 2 charging station.
