    The Multi-Unit Dwelling Charging Program provides incentives for property owners to acquire and install Level 1 and Level 2 EV charging stations.

    Locations with ten or more units are eligible. MassDEP provides 60 percent of the funding (up to $50,000 per street address) for hardware costs. 

    Residential charging is convenient and according to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 80 percent of EV charging is done at home. Offering EV charging at multi-unit dwellings provides property owners a unique way to:

    • Demonstrate environmental leadership to tenants and the surrounding community, and 
    • Enhance tenant recruitment and retention.

    See Multi-Unit Dwelling Charging Requirements below to learn more.
