Charge Georgia

Charge Georgia increased the availability of public electric vehicle (EV) charging stations throughout the state of Georgia. 

The program awarded rebates to 24 organizations—colleges, universities, state agencies, and cities and counties—totaling $350,120 to install 57 alternating current (AC) Level II and four direct current quick charging (DCQC) stations. 

The maximum rebate per organization was $40,000, with colleges and universities with multiple campuses allowed a maximum rebate of $40,000 per campus. The rebates reimbursed 50 percent of actual or proposed costs, whichever was lower, to support the planning, design, permitting, equipment, delivery, installation, inspection, and signage. As part of the rebate agreement, recipients are required to provide semiannual data from the charging stations to GEFA for a period of three years.
