The City of Fremont has been awarded $42,500 from the Nebraska Environmental Trust for an electric vehicle incentive program. The purpose of the incentive is to populate a pilot program to study the effects electric vehicle charging has on our electric system and to encourage off peak charging. In exchange for sharing their electric vehicle charging data, participants will receive an incentive of $4,500.
To qualify for the incentive, participants must:
Be a Fremont Department of Utilities customer
Electric vehicle and charging station must be licensed and registered at utility service address
Purchase an all-electric vehicle (hybrids not allowed) within the incentive timeframe
Purchase and activate a ChargePoint home charging station within the time allowed
Submit required documents
Required documents include:
Auto dealer invoice
Dodge County vehicle registration
Data release form
Proof of purchase and registration of ChargePoint EV home charger
The City of Fremont Electric Vehicle Incentive Program will run from July 1, 2019 through June 1, 2020, or until grant funds have been depleted, whichever is soonest. Data will be collected by ChargePoint and shared with the Fremont Department of Utilities for a period of three (3) years.
It is recommended participants complete a reservation application prior to purchasing an electric vehicle for the incentive to confirm there are still incentive dollars available. Participants would then have seven (7) days from the date of the reservation application to purchase the electric vehicle and provide proof of the purchase. Participants also then have 90 days from the date of the reservation application to purchase and activate their ChargePoint home charging station.
The incentive will be issued to participants once the required forms and actions have been completed by the participant.
The City of Fremont would like to thank all of our partners working together to make this incentive program possible: The Nebraska Environmental Trust, the Nebraska Community Energy Alliance, Electric Transportation Partners, and ChargePoint.
