Electric Vehicle Pilot Rebate Program

Electric Car ChargingGroton Utilities has started a limited time, pilot rebate program for the acquisition of plug in electric cars (EVPI).  How does it work, you may ask?

The program provides a $2,000 rebate for the first 20 electric vehicle purchases by Groton Utilities and Bozrah Light & Power customers, and a $1,000 rebate for the first 20 electric vehicle leases by Groton Utilities and Bozrah Light & Power customers.

These rebates are available in addition to a Federal tax credit of $7,500 and a State of Connecticut $2,000 grant.  Within our local service area, Cardinal Honda and Girard Nissan are also offering rebates on their qualifying EVPI models.

The program also provides an additional rebate up to $600 for an approved Level 2 charging station.

Customers must meet the following eligibility requirements: 

  • Provide a copy of the most current Groton Utilities electric bill paid in full, i.e. showing a zero balance.
  • Provide a proof of purchase of either an electric hybrid plug-in vehicle or an electric plug-in vehicle from any dealer selling new qualified EVPIs.
  • Provide proof of a dedicated 240V circuit installed by a Connecticut licensed electrician and signed off electrical permit from the governing building inspector.
  • The customer must also pass a Groton Utilities post installation inspection.

Groton Utilities is, as always, at your service.
