Expired, Repealed, and Archived District of Columbia Incentives and Laws
The following is a list of expired, repealed, and archived incentives, laws, regulations, funding opportunities, or other initiatives related to alternative fuels and vehicles, advanced technologies, or air quality.
The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) administers the EVSE Pilot Program to install at least 15 EVSE, including one EVSE in every ward, by January 1, 2019. Each EVSE must be able to charge more than one plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) at a time and be able to collect and transmit data to DDOT. DDOT will publish a map of EVSE locations on its website. Beginning January 1, 2020, DDOT must submit to the Council of the District of Columbia a report that analyzes charging data and provides recommendations on access, siting, and other policies to encourage the use of PEVs. (Reference District of Columbia Law 22-78, 2018)
Through the EV Project, ECOtality offers EVSE at no cost to individuals in the District of Columbia metropolitan area. To be eligible for free home charging stations, individuals living within the specified areas must purchase a qualified plug-in electric vehicle (PEV). Individuals purchasing an eligible PEV should apply at the dealership at the time of vehicle purchase. The EV Project incentive program will also cover most, if not all, of the costs of EVSE installation. All participants in the EV Project incentive program must agree to anonymous data collection after installation. Additional restrictions may apply.
Coulomb Technologies' ChargePoint America program offers EVSE at no cost to individuals or entities in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. To be eligible for free home charging stations, individuals living within the specified area must purchase a qualified plug-in electric vehicle. Application information is available on the ChargePoint America website. In most cases, installation will be paid for by the EVSE owner; some cities, states, and utilities, however, will provide funding towards installation costs. All participants in the ChargePoint America program must agree to anonymous data collection after installation. Additional restrictions may apply.
The Clean Fuel Fleet Program included an initiative for the District of Columbia (D.C.) to develop alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) incentives, such as income tax credits for AFVs, motor fuel exemptions, and preferential parking. However, the D.C. Council has not implemented the measure.
The District of Columbia Energy Office has received a Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) grant to help offset the costs of installing three compressed natural gas fuel pumps at selected commercial gas stations through the District of Columbia.
The MWCOG administers the Advanced Technology Vehicle Program - The Clean Alternative, which is funded by the MDOT and offers flexible incentives to private companies and local governments to cover the incremental cost of clean-fuel vehicles that reduce NOx emissions. In order to qualify for these incentives, interested businesses/organizations must meet certain criteria: the business/organization must have been in operation at least five years and have more than 10 vehicles in their fleet (exceptions may be made); fuel use must be greater than 3,000 gallons, or more than 45,000 miles traveled per year/per vehicle; the clean vehicle being introduced should reduce NOx; and the vehicles must be registered in Maryland and operate in the Washington, DC metropolitan area or the Baltimore metropolitan area. The exact amount of financial support is determined on a case-by-case basis, taking expected emissions benefits and other criteria into consideration.
