Cleco announces rebates for EV chargers


Cleco customers can receive rebates for the purchase and installation of electric vehicle chargers. Manager of Cleco’s EV Program Richard Biedenharn said the rebates are for both commercial and residential customers.

“I think it’s a great opportunity, the $250 residential incentive covers around half of the equipment costs of putting in a charger at your home so that’s a really great benefit,” said Biedenharn.

The residential rebates are for Level 2 EV chargers.

Rebates for commercial customers range from $1,000 to $3,500.

Biedenharn said a Level 2 EV charger and any type of application that’s in a multifamily facility, workplace, or a publicly accessible charger is eligible for a $1,000 rebate.

“We also have a $3,500 incentive for DC fast chargers and there’s also an electric forklift incentive for those customers of ours who use lifts,” said Biedenharn.
