ChargePoint L2 Home Charger Rebate
We are now offering $100 rebates to members who install a Level 2 ChargePoint electric vehicle (EV) home charger in their Hatteras Island home. The ChargePoint brand home chargers can be purchased from a variety of online retailers and are available as a plug-in station or hardwired station. These home stations charge most EVs in under four hours and work up to six times faster than using a regular wall outlet. Members can also use the ChargePoint app to schedule charging and take advantage of CHEC's Time-of-Use rate by charging when electricity is cheapest. ChargePoint is the first Energy Star certified EV charger and uses an average of 40% less energy than any other car chargers on the market.
All rebates will be in the form of bill credits. Members must fill out an application, supply a copy of the purchase receipt and sign a data sharing agreement, allowing the Cooperative to collect usage data from their charger. This valuable data will help CHEC learn about EV charging habits and trends on Hatteras Island.
With electric vehicles become more popular than ever, CHEC wants to provide you with the information needed if you are considering the purchase of a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PEV) or an all-electric vehicle (EV).
