Baltimore-Area Multifamily Properties are Eligible for a $30K Grant to Install EV Chargers


As of January 2024, Baltimore Gas & Electric (BGE) extended their “Commercial Customer Charger Rebate” program, which provides 50% (up to $5K per Level 2) in rebates up to $30K for installing EV charging at multifamily properties. But the funding won’t last forever – if interested in learning more and taking advantage of this funding, get in touch with us.

Program Summary & Incentive Amounts

BGE is looking to help multifamily property owners get ready for the growing demand in electric vehicles by offering up to $30K in rebates for each property that installs EV charging:

Level 2 Charger Receive a 50% rebate (up to $5,000 per eligible charging port) on the cost of the charger, warranty and installation​
​DCFC Charger ​Receive a 50% rebate (up to $15,000) on the cost of the charger, warranty and installation


The total rebate caps at $30,000 (so 6 Level 2 chargers or 2 DCFC chargers) for each commercial property you own within BGE’s service area.

Note – additional savings through state and federal rebates and incentives may be available. For more information, visit the U.S. Department of Energy website, Maryland Energy Administration website, or speak to a SWTCH representative to learn what you may be eligible for.
