Central Maine Power Company (CMP) is offering incentives to organizations that wish to try out plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) in an effort to encourage the use of hybrid and electric cars in the state.

Through the Plug-In Electric Vehicle Grant Program, selected organizations will receive up to $15,000 to support the lease or purchase of eligible vehicles. A portion of the grant may be applied toward the purchase and installation of a Level 2 or 3 charging station.

“[The grant program is] a chance to promote the storage of renewable and other energy generated off-peak to replace fuels with greater climate impacts,” said Adam Cutter, manager of the utility’s grant program. “We’re looking for organizations that share CMP’s strong commitment to the environment, will maximize road time for the vehicles, and record this important data. We also hope to see a broad range of electric vehicle models to help us get a thorough evaluation of the options that are available in today’s market.”
