The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) offers grants for the installation of public direct current (DC) fast charging EVSE along Minnesota highways and interstates. Grants are available for 80% of the project costs, up to $170,000 per 150 kilowatt (kW) EVSE (eligible in Albert Lea only) and up to $70,000 per 50kW EVSE. A total of twenty-one 50kW EVSE and one 150kW EVSE will be funded. Other terms and conditions apply. This grant program is funded by Minnesota's portion of the Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust. Funding is not available for this incentive (verified July 2019).
