Rebates are not intended for single-family residences or individually owned parking stalls. Eligible EV charging stations are publicly available; serve multiple tenants, employees or customers; or serve EV fleets.

How Do I Start?

  1. Select a licensed contractor to help you. For convenience, we suggest choosing one of our approved Clean Energy Allies who are familiar with our rebate process.
  2. Assess: First, the contractor will visit your building to assess the site and its infrastructure. The contractor will then provide a proposal on the EV Charging Station installation at your site.
  3. Order: Once the assessment is complete and you approve the project, the contractor will order the charging station that will suit your needs.
  4. Install: Your new EV Charging Station will be installed and you must submit all required documentation along with your incentive application within 12 months of completed installation. Please remember, rebates are available on a first-come first-served basis as long as funding is available, so submit your application as soon as possible.

Funding for this special rebate offer was appropriated by the Hawai‘i State Legislature in 2019 and is administered on behalf of the Hawai‘i Public Utilities Commission by Hawai‘i Energy. This rebate is therefore subject to different terms and conditions than other Hawai‘i Energy rebates, and we encourage you to read through the eligibility requirements and application thoroughly before applying.
