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

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.
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.
