ComEd Rebate Program for EV Chargers

Home » ComEd Rebate Program for EV Chargers

Electric vehicles are a sustainable alternative to traditional vehicles that can help cut down on carbon emissions and save costs when it comes to fuel and maintenance.  While the use of electric vehicles (EVs) is growing, they have not been widely adopted yet as most people are still driving traditional vehicles.  One of the reasons for this is because EVs are not as accessible for many drivers.  ComEd is helping to make EVs more accessible and encourage the use of these vehicles with their new EV Charger and Installation Rebate Program.

How Can I Qualify?

To qualify for the ComEd EV Charger and Installation Rebate Program, you must have an existing residential ComEd account or have requested ComEd services for new construction, and either have installed or are planning to install at least one Level 2 EV charger.  The EV charger must have been purchased either on or after February 1, 2024, for a single-family home or multi-family home with two units or less.

The Level 2 EV charger you purchase and install must be a “smart,” Wi-Fi enabled charger, ENERGY STAR® certified, and NRTL certified to be eligible.  You must apply for the rebate within 90 calendar days of the completion of the installation.  You can also apply for the rebate before the installation, but the installation of the EV charger must be completed before the application can be finalized and approved.  For the EV charger installation to be considered complete, the charger must be installed, energized, and verified as operational.

The rebate can be used to cover costs including the purchase of the EV charger, contractor labor, electrical panels, conduits, cables, fasteners, and more.  When applying for the rebate program, you must also submit the following materials:

  • Specifications sheet for the EV charger
  • Dated receipt for the purchase of the EV charger
  • Photo of installed EV charger
  • Photo of the serial number of the EV charger
  • Invoice from the EV charger installation contractor
  • Proof of residential ComEd account

Who Qualifies as a Select Customer?

Those who meet all of the qualifications described in the above section can receive the base rebate of $2500.  Those who are considered Select Customers may receive higher rebates of up to $3750.  You can qualify as a Select Customer if you meet the following criteria, as well as the criteria described in the previous section:

  • Low income: Customers are considered low-income (LI) if their income is at or below 80% of the statewide median or below a threshold designated by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development based on household income and size.
  • Equity Investment Eligible Community (EIEC): Customers who live in an EIEC, also known as an Environmental Justice/Restore, Reinvest, Renew community (“EJ”/”R3”), are considered Select Customers.

Customers must meet only one of these two criteria, either low-income or living in an EIEC, to be considered a Select Customer and qualify for the highest rebate of $3750.  ComEd will determine the eligibility for higher rebates during the application review.

Must Be a ComEd Customer

As mentioned above, the ComEd EV Charger and Installation Rebate Program is available to ComEd customers with residential accounts.  Customers must be enrolled in one of the following account options:

  • ComEd’s Basic Electrical Service Hourly Pricing (Rate BESH): This is ComEd’s basic hourly pricing program with a time-variant rate.
  • Alternative Retail Electrical Supplier (ARES): If you have a time-variant rate account with an approved ARES in ComEd’s service territory, you can still qualify for the rebate. You must inform ComEd of the ARES so they can confirm that your account with the alternative supplier is eligible for the rebate.
  • Residential Optimization Pilot: More information will be available soon as ComEd is set to launch this program in late 2024.

We had Nu-Trend add an EV charging port to our garage which was organized via Qmert, who contracted Nu-Trend to do the installation. I first met Dave, who came out to inspect the job site and put together a quotation; he is an excellent, Knowledgeable, and professional electrician. Shane at Nu-Trend took care of all the paperwork which includes a work permit from the local council and inspection after installation. Dave and a co-worker who was also excellent came to the house and did the installation in about half a day, the quality of the workmanship was impeccable. The work passed Inspection with flying colors.
