The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency is accepting applications to install Level 2 EV charging stations in public places, workplaces, and multiunit dwellings. The approximately $664,000 in grant funds aim to reduce tailpipe emissions, including greenhouse gas emissions, in the state and improve air quality and public health by increasing the use of electric vehicles in place of gas-powered cars.
The maximum amount available is $7,500 for a single-port station and $15,000 per dual-port station installation. The maximum award per application is $150,000.
Projects must include a minimum of two charging station units. The charging stations do not have to be in the same location, although, each location must have a minimum of two charging ports.
Grantees will be required to provide a cash match for a percentage of the equipment cost. The grant funds come from Minnesota’s share of the national Volkswagen settlement.
