Electric vehicle charging incentive program

Ontario is showing its support for electric vehicles (EVs) by offering up to $1,000 to help you purchase and install charging stations for home or business use. Find out whether you're eligible and how to apply for a rebate.

Eligible participants

If you have already received the provincial rebate for the purchase of an electric vehicle, you are eligible for a rebate to support the purchase of a Level 2 charging station. You can plug your car into a regular household outlet but upgrading to a Level 2 (220V, 30amps) station, connected to the same type of plug you need for a dryer or stove, will let you charge your car faster.

  • Level 1 - (110 V) AC
  • Level 2 - (220 V) AC
  • Level 3 - (480 V) DC

The rebate covers:

50% of the purchase cost, up to $500

+

50% of the installation cost, up to $500 (a maximum value of $1,000)

Rebate requirements

Individuals and organizations who have purchased an EV and received a rebate can apply for the charging station rebate. You can request one charging rebate for each vehicle rebate you received.

To receive a rebate, your charging station must:

  • be for residential or business vehicle use (not for public or customer use)
  • have a nominal voltage rating of 208-240 V (Level 2) only
  • be designed to charge one car at a time. Dual port charging stations are not eligible unless you have received two vehicles and two rebates
  • be on the list of eligible charging stations
  • have been purchased in Canada from a Canadian source (i.e. third-party certified or evaluated by cUL, CSA or cETL

Expenses eligible for rebate include:

  • the purchase price of the charging station
  • the costs associated with installing the unit by a Licensed Electrical Contractor
  • the cost associated with an electrical inspection undertaken by ESA

You will need to provide proof of installation by showing your certificate of inspection issued by the ESA. The certificate can be obtained from the electrical contractor who installed the charging station or from the ESA if the installation was completed by an employee or a homeowner.

Eligible electric vehicle charging stations

The Level 2 (208-240V) electric vehicle charging stations listed below qualify for Ontario's EV Charging Incentive Program. Please note this list is evolving and will be updated as needed. Inclusion in this list is not an endorsement of products by the Ontario government.

The charging stations on this list were provided by manufacturers who indicated they could be purchased from a Canadian source. While the ministry tries to keep the list current, it cannot ensure there is sufficient inventory of these products at Canadian distributors or if it is not available from a Canadian source. If the charging station cannot be ordered/purchased from a Canadian source, it will be ineligible for a rebate.

For further information on any of these products, please visit the company websites provided below.

This list is up to date as of January, 25, 2016.
