EV Rebates

Claim a $500 rebate

TEP is making electric vehicle ownership more convenient and affordable for homeowners by offering rebates to residential customers who install a qualified EV charger in their home. These rebates help promote cleaner energy and cleaner air to benefit our environment and the community.

Home Electric Vehicle Chargers (EVC) Rebates

TEP residential customers can claim a rebate covering up to 75 percent of the cost of installing an EVC. The rebate is up to $500 for a qualified two-way communicating EVC or up to $250 for a one-way, non-communicating EVC. The incentive will be issued as a credit on a qualifying customer’s TEP account. One incentive per EVC per highway-approved battery electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle is allowed.

To receive the EVC rebate, TEP customers must:

  • Install a Level 2 or higher EVC
  • Provide proof of purchase and installation of the EVC along with the EVC serial and model numbers
  • Use a licensed installer and provide proof that the work was properly permitted
  • Provide a copy of the EV registration during the TEP representative’s site visit
  • Agree to use and remain on a TEP Time-of-Use pricing plan for at least two years
  • The property owner must allow a TEP representative to enter the home to verify program requirements are met

* This rebate applies to EVCs installed on or after Feb. 20, 2019. Incentives are subject to the availability of funding. This program is subject to change or expire without notice. Full rebate details are available on the Electric Vehicle Charger Program Application Form.

Rebates for Business Owners

TEP’s Smart EV Charging Program offers generous incentives as well as technical support to commercial businesses, multi-family complexes and nonprofit customers that purchase and install EV charging ports at their location.

Other EV benefits and incentives

In Arizona, EVs are exempt from all emissions testing requirements. Once you have an Alternative Fuel Vehicle license plate, you can use the HOV freeway lanes at any time, regardless of the number of passengers.

State tax incentives also are available, including reduced vehicle license tax. EV owners also may qualify for federal tax credits of up to $7,500 for the purchase of a new plug-in EV.

Fuel is a lot less expensive, too. In Arizona, charging an EV is about a third of the cost of fueling a traditional gasoline vehicle.
