The Joint Utilities are comprised of Central Hudson Gas and Electric Corporation, Consolidated Edison Company of New York, Inc. (“Con Edison”), New York State Electric & Gas Corporation, Niagara Mohawk Power Corporation d/b/a National Grid (“National Grid”), Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc. and Rochester Gas and Electric Corporation. Together, the Joint Utilities provide electric service to over 13 million households, businesses, and government facilities across New York State.
The goal of the Electric Vehicle (“EV”) Make-Ready Program (“EV Make-Ready Program”) is to support the development of electric infrastructure and equipment necessary to accommodate an increased deployment of EVs within New York State by reducing the upfront costs of building charging stations for EVs. Through this EV Make-Ready Program, entities seeking to install or participate in the installation of Level 2 (“L2”) and/or Direct Current Fast Charging (“DCFC”) chargers can earn incentives that will offset a large portion of, or in some cases, all of the infrastructure costs associated with preparing a site for EV charger installation. ChargeSmart EV is an approved contractor for NYS. We will handle all of the paperwork that is necessary for these incentives on your behalf. We are a preferred partner with all of the utilities across New York State.
Charge Ready NY offers public and private organizations that install Level 2 EV charging stations at public parking facilities, workplaces, and multifamily apartment buildings rebates for charging ports they install. A significant savings of 30% to 80%, depending on station and installation costs. There are also additional rebates for charging stations that are installed in disadvantaged communities. ChargeSmart EV will assist all of our customers with the necessary information needed to obtain and apply for NYSERDA rebates. ChargeSmart EV only uses charging stations that have been approved and eligible for the NYSERDA Charge Ready Program as charging station owners must install charging stations that have been approved by NYSERDA and are listed on the Charge Ready NY qualified list. Charging stations must be installed at an eligible New York State location that meets the requirements for public parking facilities, workplaces, or multi-unit dwellings described above. Charge Ready NY rebates can be combined with the New York State tax credit for installing charging stations. The tax credit is applied after taking out the amount you receive from NYSERDA. Charge Ready NY rebates CANNOT be combined with other New York State charging station rebate programs from NYSERDA, the Department of Environmental Conservation, the New York Power Authority, or other State entities.
