Illinois EPA EV Rebate Program
The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency opened a new EV Rebate Program funding round on November 1, 2023, however, the current number of EV Rebate Program applications that have been received by the Illinois EPA has surpassed the amount of available Fiscal Year 2024 funding appropriated by the General Assembly ($12 million). As specified in the law, program rules, IEPA EV Rebate Program website, and FAQ, rebate applications are subject to the availability of funds. Applicants that qualify as “Low-Income” per the program guidelines will continue to be prioritized for rebate issuance. Please visit the Illinois EPA Electric Vehicle Rebate website for more information.
EV Charging Infrastructure Funding and Incentives
The Illinois EPA is also directed to provide funding, consistent with Illinois Commerce Commission-approved Beneficial Electrification Plans, to public and private organizations and companies to install and maintain Level 2 or Level 3 charging stations. Up to 80% of the cost of the installation of charging stations may be funded. Additional awards may incentivize charging infrastructure in eligible communities. Applications will be posted to this page when available. See the Charging Infrastructure Grant Program, 35 Ill. Adm. Code 285, for program rules.
Additionally, DuPage County has a Sustainability Resources page detailing various incentives for solar installations, commercial PACE programs, EV incentives and comparison tools, along with alternative fuel station locator maps and much more!
