The Volkswagen Clean Air Act Civil Settlement enabled the State of Idaho to allocate $2.6 million to provide incentives for entities to deploy electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE). Idaho’s EVSE Program provides cost-share funds for the deployment of public direct current fast charging (DCFC) equipment along the Idaho’s major travel corridors. EVSE hosts are eligible for reimbursement of costs associated with the purchase and installation of EVSE equipment. Private sites are eligible for 80% and publicly-owned sites are eligible for 100% reimbursement. The Office of Energy and Mineral Resources jointly administers the EVSE Program with the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), providing technical assistance to potential site hosts as they evaluate the opportunity to install EV charging.
More information regarding the EVSE Program and the application may be found at the DEQ’s VW and Diesel Funding webpage. Please direct questions to email@example.com.
