EV Charger Rebate Options for Wisconsin Residents

post img

Electric vehicles are becoming popular for residents throughout the United States, but their adoption is often limited in areas that lack public EV charging access. With just 461 DC fast chargers available statewide, Wisconsin has fallen far behind other states in the roll-out of this new technology, and this can harm not only the progress of electric vehicles but EV users and the economy itself.

However, homeowners have options if they want to try out the latest generation of EVs — they can install their own high-current EV charger at home and make the lack of public EV chargers a non-issue for all but the longest road trips.

With Action Plumbing, Heating, A/C and Electric, you can save money daily with our professionally installed home EV chargers. Contact us to request a quote in Madison.

Federal EV Charger Rebates

Although the installation of public EV chargers in Wisconsin may have hit a roadblock, residents can still install their own EV charging stations, and thanks to a valuable federal tax credit, it’s easier than ever.

With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, homeowners can earn a credit worth 30% of the installation costs for an EV charger, including labor, up to a maximum of $1,000. Plus, depending on your location, local rebates and incentives may also be available for installing home EV chargers.

Wisconsin’s EV Charger Legislation Issues

In March 2024, Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers signed several new bills into law that make it far easier for businesses like gas stations and convenience stores to install new public charging stations.

The legislation takes advantage of over $80 million in federal funds provided by the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure program, with the ultimate goal of having charging stations no more than 25 miles apart on Wisconsin’s most heavily used highways.

Progress has been slow in installing new EV chargers, however, primarily due to an existing Wisconsin law that allows only utility companies to sell electricity by the kilowatt-hour. While an exception to this law has been passed for businesses that supply only EVs with power, there is still uncertainty about the future of the EV charger roll-out.

Home EV Charger Installation

Most electric vehicles include a Level 1 charger that plugs into a standard 120-volt household outlet, but these can take days to fully recharge today’s extended-range EVs. Upgrading to a Level-2 charger can dramatically reduce your charge times, often allowing you to top off your battery overnight.

A Level 2 charger uses a dedicated high-current 240-volt circuit to deliver more power faster to your electric vehicle. This helps you avoid stops at public charging stations, which are few and far between in Wisconsin. It can also save you money on those recharges and time. Plus, a battery that is charged slower tends to have a longer service life.

Our licensed electricians can help you determine the best EV charger for your needs, and we complete the entire installation process, from adding a dedicated circuit and new breakers to installing the charger and cord.
