Electric Vehicle PowerReady Program

We’re offering incentives that will offset up to 100% of the electric infrastructure costs associated with installing chargers for electric vehicles

Electric Vehicle Charging at Con Edison

We’re accelerating the move toward electric vehicle ownership by connecting thousands of new public and customer-owned charging stations. By increasing the number of chargers on our streets, we’re making it easier for New Yorkers to own and drive a plug-in hybrid or electric car in our service area.

PowerReady Program (formerly known as “Make-Ready”) provides incentives that will offset the electric infrastructure costs associated with installing chargers for electric vehicles.

PowerReady Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Program

You may be eligible for incentives when you install level 2 and/or direct current fast charging chargers for light-duty vehicles. These incentives can lower infrastructure costs associated with preparing your site for electric vehicle chargers and receiving electric service from our grid.

Public fast-charging sites and multi-family level 2 sites in certain areas are eligible for a higher incentive level.

Medium- and Heavy-Duty Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Program

We aim to lower diesel emissions by transitioning medium- and heavy-duty fleets to electric in our service area.

PowerReady incentives cover up to 87.5% of the utility-side costs in 2021, and up to 85% in 2022, with incentives capped at $1.2 million per participant.

Eligible costs include traditional distribution infrastructure, such as step-down transformers, overhead service lines, and utility meters.

Incentives can be stacked with NYSERDA's Truck Voucher Incentive Program or with NYC Clean Trucks for select locations in New York City, both of which offset the cost of purchasing electric trucks.

Applications can be submitted through 2022. In mid-2021, we’ll assess if participants may be eligible for additional incentives based on the program budget at that time.
