The Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control’s Division of Energy & Climate is encouraging businesses, nonprofit organizations, and local governments to take advantage of the opportunity to install electric vehicle charging stations for employees’ use through the Delaware Workplace Charging Program. Participants in the program can receive up to a $5,000 rebate for up to six charging stations as well as technical guidance on installation.
As electric vehicles grow in popularity across Delaware and the United States, installing electric vehicle charging stations is a simple and effective way for businesses and organizations to “go green” and support sustainability in their workforce and communities.
“Workplaces are ideal locations for charging stations,” said Clean Transportation Planner Kathy Harris of the Division of Energy & Climate. “Vehicles are parked there up to eight hours a day, allowing employees time to fully charge their vehicles and ensure they have enough battery range for their commute.”
