Electric Vehicle Rebate Program

Groton 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 all electric vehicle purchases by Groton Utilities and Bozrah Light & Power customers, and a $1,000 rebate for electric vehicle leases by Groton Utilities and Bozrah Light & Power customers.

These rebates are available in addition to Federal tax credits worth up to $7,500 (Federal Tax Credits) and a State of Connecticut rebate worth up to $5,000 (CHEAPR).  Within our local service area, several car dealerships have offered rebates on EV purchases in the recent past.

Groton Utilities has a limited number of rebates available and the Federal tax credit decreases after 200,000 vehicles sold of a particular model.


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 all-electric 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 vehicle MUST plug into the Groton Utilities Distribution System.
  • The customer must also pass a Groton Utilities post installation inspection.
