The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection and Board of Public Utilities have teamed up to launch a new “It Pays To Plug In” grant program. The first phase of the program will provide $725,000 in reimbursement grants to offset some of the costs to purchase and install electric vehicle charging stations. The grants are a component of the state’s “Drive Green New Jersey” initiative that also includes a website with information about the different types of electric vehicles available, how to charge them, affordability, and impact on air quality. The grants are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis of up to $250 for each Level 1 charging station installed, and up to $5,000 for each Level 2 charging station installed. Eligible applicants include public, private, for-profit, nonprofit, educational and governmental entities. Owners of parking facilities used by commuters or employees of other companies are also eligible. Learn how your municipality or school district can take advantage of this grant opportunity and earn points towards Sustainable Jersey Certification!
