Anaheim Commercial EV Charger Rebates​

Last Updated: 3/23/2022

California is home to the most electric vehicles (EVs) in the U.S. It’s no surprise, given state and local agencies provide incentives and rebates for EVs and EV charging. Many state agencies also establish and implement policies that support EV adoption.

EV chargers provide dozens of benefits for commercial, including environmental and financial perks.

If your business is in the City of Anaheim and you’re an Anaheim Public Utilities customer, you’re in luck! Anaheim Public Utilities offers some of the best EV charging incentives for commercial EV charging installations. In this article, we’ll go over how much you can receive in commercial EV charging rebates from Anaheim Public Utilities.


Why EV Charging for Commercial?

Installing an EV charging station at your business is a no-brainer and a good investment. 

EV charging stations are extremely beneficial to companies. 

Installing EV charging stations at your site attracts and retains employees, attracts customers, increases customer loyalty, puts your business on the map, helps you meet sustainability goals, helps you lower your carbon footprint, increases your company’s commitment to social responsibility, and provides an optional additional source of revenue through charging fees.
