Program Details

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) and the Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC) has established a residential Electric Vehicle (EV) charging incentive pilot program to offset Level 2 (240v) EV charger hardware costs. This program will be available to residents within the South Coast AQMD’s four-county jurisdiction.

The program will provide an incentive to buy-down the cost of residential chargers, which typically range from $400-$800. The program will be implemented on a first come, first served basis and will provide up to $250 for the cost of hardware for Level 2 residential chargers. An additional incentive of up to $250 will be available for low-income residents.

Charger Requirements

  • Charger would need to be installed at a 240v outlet or by a licensed electrician if no 240V outlet exists.
