11/15/22 Update: New application deadline and incentive amounts announced!
Through this Funding Opportunity Notice (FON), Efficiency Maine is seeking applications for Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) chargers that are available to the public in rural communities. This opportunity falls under Efficiency Maine’s Electric Vehicle Initiatives and aims to expand public EV charging infrastructure in rural and remote areas in Maine. The goal of this round of funding is to assist rural communities in the state’s 14 northern counties (i.e., all counties except Cumberland County and York County), where public EV chargers are less common, to enhance those communities’ capacity to attract commerce and tourism and to serve local EV drivers as EVs become the dominant form of transportation. Developing comprehensive coverage of public EV chargers throughout the state will also encourage EV adoption in all parts of Maine.
Local governments, businesses, tribal governments, and non-profits in eligible towns may apply for this FON. Projects at local government-owned properties, tribal properties, and public libraries are eligible for a bonus incentive.
For more details on this opportunity, download the “Rural Level 2 EV Charging Funding Opportunity Notice” document in the section below. Additional materials needed to apply to this FON are also available below.
The deadline to apply for this funding opportunity is January 17, 2023.
