How Do I Start?
- Contact a local retailer/installation contractor to help you. We suggest choosing one of our approved Clean Energy Allies. (On Kauai? Click here for a list of contractors servicing your island).
- Assess: Work with your contractor to assess your site and infrastructure, and review their estimate for installing your station(s).
- Order & Install: Once you approve the project, the contractor will order the charging station that will suit your needs.
- Submit Rebate Forms: Once your station is installed, be sure to submit all required documentation within 12 months of activating your station(s). Don’t forget, rebates are awarded on a first-come first-served basis as long as funding is available, so submit your application as soon as possible.
Rebate Application &
NOTE: Rebates are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while funding lasts. Terms and conditions apply. Installed stations must be multi-port Level 2 or DC fast-charging type with network connectivity. Single-family residences and individually owned parking stalls not eligible.
Affordable housing developments must serve families making no more than 100% of the Hawaii Area Median Income (AMI) – as defined per county – to qualify for bonus rebates. Affordable housing developments on Kauai are eligible.
Program Overview & Eligibility
- The current round of rebate funds is available for EV charging stations (EVCS) installed between January 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022.
- Funds are limited and applications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis, as funds are available. There will be no fund reservations or waitlist for this round of funding, so early application submissions are highly encouraged.
- Applications must be received by Hawaii Energy within 12 months of the date that a qualifying charging station was installed, activated, and made available for use.
- Applicants may receive up to six (6) Level 2 EVCS rebates (up to a total of $27,000) per site or up to two (2) DC Fast-Charger rebates per utility customer (N.B.: one DC Fast-Charger per site; i.e., up to a total of $35,000 per site).
- Program approval is generally not required prior to the purchase and installation of equipment; however, prior approval is strongly recommended to confirm funding availability and verify that the equipment meets minimum qualifications for an incentive.

Progress To Date

EVCS Installed Since 2019
Data as of August 2021
“We strongly believe that more and more of our residents will be buying EVs in the future and we want to prepare for this emerging need in our communities. We were happy that we could incorporate EV charging stations at our Ko`oloa`ula and Kulia properties.”

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