In 2023, Brown County REA will offer a rebate of $500 toward the installation of a Level 2 Electric Vehicle (EV) charger and separate metering equipment for Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) and Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) owners to charge at home. Members must enroll in an Electric Vehicle rate to qualify.
Electric Vehicles (EVs) can be 3 to 5 times cheaper than gasoline and diesel-powered cars, depending on your location gasoline and electric rates. EVs have no tailpipe emissions and do not require gasoline. Electric vehicles can be charged at home with either a level 1 charge which requires a standard 120V outlet or with a level 2 charger that requires a 240V outlet. A level 2 charger allows for faster and more efficient charging.
