    The Public Access Charging Program provides incentives for property owners with publicly accessible parking to acquire Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Non-residential locations with publicly accessible parking are eligible.

    MassDEP provides 80 percent of the funding up to $6,250 per port, and a maximum of $50,000 per street address, for hardware and installation costs.

    By providing charging stations that are accessible to the public, property owners can:

    • Attract EV owners to their business locations and city/town centers, and
    • Demonstrate environmental leadership to the surrounding community.

    See Public Access Charging Program Requirements below to learn more.

  3. MassDEP Reviews Your Application

    The agency begins by checking your application for completeness and verifying your eligibility.

    MassDEP will then assess your application to determine whether your project would:

    • Drive technological and policy progress,
    • Be located in or adjacent to an Environmental Justice area,
    • Promote equitable geographic distribution across the state, and
    • Likely be completed earlier than the 180 days allowed.

    If your project is selected, MassDEP will issue you an approval letter and contract documents that specify the terms and conditions of your award.

  4. Complete Your MassEVIP Transaction

    Once you sign and return the contract documents to MassDEP, you have 180 days to acquire and install your charging station(s), and make the equipment operational.

    MassDEP will make incentive payments directly to you or to the vendor(s) once all equipment is installed and operating.
