Consumers Energy approved 387 rebates for electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at homes and public locations across the state. This was part of its goal to build the backbone of Michigan’s infrastructure for drivers of emissions-free cards.

According to a press release from Consumers Energy, about 1.5 million electric vehicles were sold in the U.S. in the last decade. The Edison Electric Institute forecasts more than 18 million electric vehicles will be on U.S. roads by 2030. The company started PowerMIDrive in 2019 to promote electric vehicle ownership for the good and the planets economy.

“We’re confident that 2020 will be a milestone year for electric vehicles in Michigan as businesses and residents install charging stations with help from Consumers Energy’s PowerMIDrive program,” said Brian Rich, Consumers Energy’s senior vice president for customer experience. “It will be important to see EV charging kick into high gear, making it easy for owners to power their electric vehicles quickly and reliably.”

The most rebates for public locations were in Kent, Kalamazoo, Genesee, Jackson and Muskegon counties, with Kent County receiving 47.

Consumers Energy’s PowerMIDrive program offers the following rebates:

  • RESIDENTIAL – Rebates worth $500 for installing eligible 240-volt chargers at homes.
  • PUBLIC – Rebates for 200 Level 2 vehicle chargers in public places and at workplaces, with a rebate of up to $5,000 per charger.
  • FAST CHARGERS – Rebates of up to $70,000 for 24 fast charging stations along highways and travel routes.
