CEC CALSTART Communities in Charge Incentives for Lvl 2 EV Charging: Wave 2 Opening Soon 11/7-12/22

Opportunity Title:

Communities in Charge Funding Wave #2


California Energy Commission


Communities in Charge is California’s market-accelerating, light-duty electric vehicle (EV) charging incentive project funded by the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program, implemented by CALSTART, and supported in partnership with GRID Alternatives and Tetra Tech. Communities in Charge is designed to transform EV accessibility, rapidly catalyze new markets, and swiftly deploy Level 2 EV charging stations.

Communities in Charge is built to scale as funding is made available and aims to help set participants up for success before, during, and after chargers are installed. The project integrates transparent participation requirements and technical assistance to help participants plan for a successful project. The project team will offer support and outreach for participants of various readiness levels, with financial incentives reserved for projects with the highest levels of readiness. Please visit the Eligibility section for more information on readiness tiers.


An Applicant to Communities in Charge must be the property owner, their authorized lessee, or their authorized representative seeking incentives for eligible costs incurred towards the installation of Level 2 EVSEs.

A Project Site for Communities in Charge is the real property with an identifiable address in California on which planned expansion of Level 2 EV chargers shall be installed and remain in operation for the duration of their network agreement. All Level 2 EV site types (excluding single-family homes, duplexes, triplexes, and individual mobile homes) are eligible for incentives.
