    The Workplace Charging Program provides incentives for employers to acquire and install Level 1 and Level 2 EV charging stations. Applicants with 15 or more employees in non-residential places of business are eligible.

    MassDEP provides 60 percent of the funding (up to $50,000 per street address) for hardware costs. The agency recommends acquiring Energy Star-Certified EV charging stations.

    By installing workplace charging stations, employers:

    • Allow access to EV charging for employees who may not be able to charge their vehicles at home. 
    • Demonstrate environmental leadership to employees, customers and the surrounding community. 
    • Improve employee commuting practices and reduce vehicle emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.
    • Enhance employee benefit packages, which can help with employee recruitment and retention.

    See Workplace Charging Program Requirements below to learn more.
