Ashland offers incentive for electric vehicle charging stations

The city of Ashland is offering a $100 incentive to people who install an electric vehicle plug-in station in homes under construction.

The incentive is meant to encourage electric vehicle use while offsetting costs.

Plug-in stations cost less than $500 to more than $1,000, depending on the number of added features.

Upgrading a home’s electrical system to accommodate the higher load of a station can run from $200 to several thousand dollars, according to electric vehicle experts.

The $100 incentive is available when a home is built to Earth Advantage or ENERGY STAR program standards, said city of Ashland Management Analyst Adam Hanks.

Homes built under those programs are at least 15 percent more energy efficient than regular homes and can include various features, such as increased insulation, insulating windows, tight duct work and energy-efficient appliances and lighting, according to the city.
