PECO has announced incentives for commercial customers who install EV-charging stations for public use. The incentive will be available to any commercial customer who receives funding under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection's "Driving PA Forward" program.

This is confirmed to be $500 per approved charger installation project (i.e. individual DEP application), limited to $1,500 per entity (DEP’s terminology – equivalent to PECO Customer/Business – may be at different sites). Applications are still under development but a copy of the PA DEP approved voucher will be required.
