Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) Demonstration Program Requirements

The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration Program (Program) requires Nevada utilities to promote and incentivize the deployment of EVSE. Utilities must submit an annual plan for implementing the Program in their service areas to the Public Utilities Commission of Nevada (PUCN). Plans may include, but are not limited to, the following measures:

  • Payment of incentives to customers that install EVSE;
  • Time-of-use rates for electricity used to charge plug-in electric vehicles;
  • EVSE education and awareness programs for customers; and
  • Technical assistance programs for government fleets and private organizations.

Customers may include public schools that install EVSE on-site or purchase electric school buses. Incentives may cover up to 75% of the installation or purchase cost.

Utilities may request to recover the costs associated with carrying out the Program, including customer incentives, by filing an application with the PUCN.
