Duke Energy - EV Charger Prep Credit Program

September 08, 2023


Duke Energy's EV Charger Prep Program provides an incentive to help residential, commercial, and multifamily customers install EV chargers. The program provides an incentive for the costs associated with the make-ready work including underground boring, installing conduit and electric panel work; not the actual charger. The exact incentive varies depending on the usage of the charger(s), the number of chargers, the nameplate capacity of the charger(s), and whether the customer's site needs upgrades required by Duke Energy, or is receiving new service from Duke.
