ALEXANDRIA, VA – Earlier today, Dominion Energy Virginia announced another step to increase electric vehicle adoption, save customers money, and reduce emissions in the state. There are new rebates available for charging stations – for multi-family communities, workplaces, transit bus depots, and fast-charging locations. The rebates are part of the Smart Charging Pilot Program.
A rebate program for Dominion Energy’s residential customers will launch early next year.
“We believe electrification isn’t just the future of transportation. We’re powering it in Virginia right now,” said Ed Baine, Senior Vice President of Power Delivery. “Soon, parents in Fairfax will be able to send their children to school on an electric school bus, commute to the metro station on Virginia’s first autonomous electric shuttle and charge their electric vehicle while running errands around town.”
Dominion Energy is committed to reducing carbon emissions and helping customers do the same.
Transportation is the largest source of carbon emissions in this country and Virginia, Using electric vehicles is vital in reducing emissions and improving air quality.
The State Commission Corporation approved the program, included in the company’s Grid Transportation Plan. The decade-long plan will transform the state’s energy grid and give customers more ways to save money, more reliable service, and more access to renewable energy. The rebates for infrastructure, chargers, and network fees range from $2,000 to more than $50,000 per project.
In addition to the rebates for this pilot program, the energy company is supporting the adoption of electric vehicles with the following:
- Helping electric vehicle owners save money when they charge at off-peak times
- Moving forward with the nation’s largest electric school bus deployment
- Debuting an electric, self-driving shuttle that will make a loop between the Dunn Loring Metro Station and Mosaic District in Fairfax
- Helping public transportation go green
- Installing public fast-charging stations
- Transitioning Dominion Energy’s own vans to electric vehicles
