Installing electric vehicle charging stations is like arriving at the summit after a hike. It was a journey over rocky terrain, but good company makes progress easier. At the top, you can see the beauty all around you. But your EV charging service might now be “going downhill.” Daily station management is just another responsibility, while underpowered hardware or outdated software leads to dissatisfaction from EV drivers. Understandably, your electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) can feel more trouble than reliable service. But from customer frustration comes EV charger incentive opportunities. Government funding for electric vehicle charging stations is available to repair or replace your unavailable chargers!
You already finished the uphill hike by installing public EV chargers where people need them. Bring your EV charging site back to life with programs like the National Electric Infrastructure Program (NEVI) and partnerships like Noodoe. Now, the Electric Vehicle Charger Reliability and Accessibility Accelerator Program (EVC-RAA) is open for applications! As of October 2023, 62,021 locations and 159,215 ports are eligible for this EV charger incentive and funding. Our experts can help you through the application process and charge better than ever.
For EVC-RAA, the Department of Transportation has $100,000,000 to give away for repairing or replacing non-operational EV chargers. As a successful EV charger incentive applicant, you can get up to 80 percent of the total project cost covered by Federal funds. Whether you repair your existing EV chargers or completely overhaul your EVSE network, your responsibility is to cover just 20 percent of the total project cost.
Whatever your site needs from an electric makeover is covered by project costs. Your Level 2 and Level 3 EV charging stations are eligible if they are currently “unavailable”.
EVSE hardware and labor costs of repairing EV chargers and related equipment (e.g., connector, screen, cord, payment terminals). This can include upgrading hardware to ensure futureproof criteria of the EVC-RAA project (e.g., replacing a DC fast charging power module to provide at least 150kW per port).
EVSE hardware, permitting, service upgrades, and labor costs to remove non-operational EV chargers from service. Once your site is ready, install new charging stations or related equipment (e.g., switchgear, utility distribution equipment, battery storage) necessary for reliable EVSE operation.
Take advantage of this opportunity to get your EV charging service back up and running with government funding. Partnering with Noodoe takes the weight off your shoulders- like hiking without the heavy backpack. Our charging management software, Noodoe EV OS, ensures your chargers meet program reliability requirements with 98% operational uptime, automatic troubleshooting, and self-repair protocols.
