# '2023 Guide to EV Charger Rebates and Incentives With the rise of electric vehicles (EVs), more and more drivers are looking for ways to charge their vehicles faster and more efficiently. To make this process more affordable, many states and local governments offer rebates and incentives for purchasing and installing EV chargers. This guide is designed to help EV owners understand the different rebates and incentives available in 2023. ## Types of EV Chargers Before diving into the specifics of EV charger rebates and incentives, it's important to understand the different types of EV chargers available. ### Level 1 Chargers Level 1 chargers are the most basic type of EV charger. They are typically used in residential settings and are connected to a regular household outlet. Level 1 chargers are the slowest type of charger, and it can take up to 24 hours to fully charge an EV battery. ### Level 2 Chargers Level 2 chargers are much faster than Level 1 chargers and can charge an EV battery in as little as 6 hours. They are typically installed in residential settings and are connected to a 240-volt outlet. Level 2 chargers are the most common type of EV charger and are recommended for most EV owners. ### Level 3 Chargers Level 3 chargers, also known as "fast chargers," are the fastest type of EV charger. They are typically found in commercial settings and can charge an EV battery in as little as 30 minutes. Level 3 chargers are the most expensive type of EV charger and are not typically recommended for residential use. ## EV Charger Rebates and Incentives Now that you understand the different types of EV chargers, let's take a look at the different rebates and incentives available to EV owners in 2023. ### Federal Tax Credit The federal government offers a tax credit of up to $7,500 for EV owners who purchase or lease a new EV. This credit can be used to offset the cost of purchasing and installing an EV charger. ### State and Local Incentives Many states and local governments offer additional incentives for purchasing and installing EV chargers. For example, the state of Nevada offers a rebate of up to $2,000 for EV owners who install a Level 2 charger at their home. In addition, many local governments offer additional rebates and incentives for EV owners. ### Utility Company Incentives In addition to state and local incentives, many utility companies offer additional incentives for EV owners. For example, NV Energy, the largest utility company in Nevada, offers a rebate of up to $1,000 for EV owners who install a Level 2 charger at their home. ## Solar-Powered EV Chargers Many EV owners are now taking advantage of solar energy to power their EV chargers. Solar-powered EV chargers are a great way to reduce the cost of charging an EV, as they can be powered by the sun's energy and do not require a utility company connection. Sunnova and Amica recently partnered to provide solar-powered EV charging solutions to EV owners in Nevada.
