Duke Energy $1.5M program to increase public EV charging stations in N.C. by 30%

Duke Energy’s “EV Charging Infrastructure Support Project” will provide $1 million to help cities and towns develop public charging stations for residents. Duke Energy will pay 100% up to $5,000 per charge port; $20,000 per site, or $50,000 per city under the program.

Another part of the project is an additional $500,000 devoted to cities and towns for the construction of electric bus charging stations. Again, Duke Energy will pay 100% for electric bus charging infrastructure up to $250,000 per entity.

The programs are part of a recent settlement with the US Environmental Protection Agency and environmental groups.

Duke Energy has been active in building public charging stations at parking decks, libraries and shopping areas. According to Advanced Energy, an independent, non-profit organization established by the North Carolina Utilities Commission, there are about 4,700 registered plug-in EVs and about 700 public charging ports spread out around North Carolina.

The programs are targeted to cities and towns, which include both retail and wholesale customers. Interested parties may apply, but are not obligated to proceed if selected as a recipient. The deadline to apply is 1 September.

Interested parties can download the public EV charging form or the bus charging form.
