ILLINOIS TO REBATE 80% OF ELECTRIC VEHICLE CHARGER INSTALL COSTS
Illinois environmental protection agency will create a program that will cover up to 80% of install costs for electric vehicle chargers starting July 1st 2022 as long as prevailing wage is paid for the install. That was included in the climate bill the Governor signed last month. If that community and or person is “environmental justice community/person” they can also get additional incentives.
(20 ILCS 627/55 new) Sec. 55. Charging rebate program.

The Agency shall award additional incentives per port for every charging station installed in an eligible community and every charging station located to support eligible persons. In order to be eligible to receive a rebate or grant, the organization or company must submit an application to the Agency and commit to paying the prevailing wage for the installation project. The Agency shall by rule provide application and other programmatic details and requirements, including additional incentives for eligible communities. The Agency may determine per port or project caps based on a review of best practices and stakeholder engagement. The Agency shall accept applications on a rolling basis and shall award rebates or grants within 60 days of each application. The Agency may not award rebates or grants to an organization or company that does not pay the prevailing wage for the installation of a charging station for which it seeks a rebate or grant.
Our Team Performs Commercial EV Charger Installation
We offer a wide range of commercial EV charger options. There are three main types of electric vehicle charging stations. Many homeowners opt for Level 1 charging stations. These use a standard 120-volt outlet. While this option is the least expensive, it is not ideal for commercial settings. Some electric cars take up to 20 hours to charge using this type of station. Therefore, our commercial clients will benefit most from Level 2 charging stations and DC fast charging stations:
- Level 2 Charging – These charging stations can deliver up to 40 miles of driving range per hour of charging time. As a result, they are the standard for commercial properties.
- DC Fast Charging – Also known as Level 3 charging, this option can provide more than 100 miles of range per hour of charging time. However, it is not compatible with all electric vehicles.
After you determine which style will work best for your needs, our professionals will help you obtain a permit and arrange for inspections to facilitate the process. Our electricians can install these systems quickly and efficiently around your busy schedule.
