Direct Current Fast Charging Per Plug Incentive

Rockland Electric commercial customers may be eligible to receive annual incentives to offset the equipment, operational, and demand charge costs of hosting Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) stations.

The DCFC Incentive Program is intended to address cost barriers, and encourage DCFC deployment, by effectively lowering operating costs through demand charge relief in the near-to medium-term while station utilization increases to levels where such support can be lowered or eliminated. If you are a Multifamily Dwelling Owner or Tenant, click here to find out what programs and rates your DCFC project qualifies for.

How to Get Started

Each plug that meets the requirements of the program is eligible for an annual incentive payment.

The full incentive is available for plugs rated with power capacity of 50kW and higher and is designed to cover 75 percent of demand charge. Payments are made annually from the date equipment is placed in service, from the initial program year through the end of the program, December 18th 2026.

  • DCFC plugs must be standard
  • DCFC EVSE must be connected to an AMI (smart meter) with no other equipment connected
  • Participants must take service under a demand-based tariff
  • Participants must guarantee public accessibility and operational functionality in a manner consistent with the definitions for publicly accessible plug and operational requirement
  • The number of plugs eligible for the incentive will be defined as those plugs capable of simultaneously charging at 50 kW or greater
  • DCFC stations with more than ten plugs and/or demand in excess of 2MW will be allowed to participate in the DCFC Incentive Program. If development of the site causes RECO to incur new business costs greater than the cost that would be incurred to develop a site with a maximum demand of 2MW, the incentive will be lowered and capped at the 2MW new business cost.Plugs must comply with Federal Americans with Disabilities Act guidelines, and must be listed on the U.S. Department of Energy Alternative Fueling Station Locator
