Cobb EMC wants to make it easier to go electric. Get $250 when you install an EV charger, also known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), in your home. You are eligible for the EV charger incentive if you own a single-family home, install an ENERGY STAR certified level 2 EV charger, and enroll in Cobb EMC’s Energy Network.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Energy Network program? How is this incentive different from a rebate program?

The Energy Network program is a member engagement initiative offered by Cobb EMC. Members receive an incentive to help with the purchase and installation costs of an energy improvement for their home. In return, they agree to engage with Cobb EMC through focus groups, surveys, webinars and more.

The program allows members to improve their homes while also allowing Cobb EMC to gain insights into the member experience related to installing and using home energy improvements.

Where can I purchase my EV charger? Do I need to buy a specific brand?

You can purchase your ENERGY STAR certified level 2 EV charger from any manufacturer or brand. Cobb EMC has EV chargers available for purchase through our Amazon Shop. Cobb EMC receives a small commission from any purchases made through our shop, but it never affects the prices or products we pick. All proceeds support our annual Home Energy Efficiency Makeover program. You may also choose to purchase your charger from a manufacturer, such as ChargePoint, or a local dealer. Save a copy of your receipt. You will need the receipt to qualify for an EV charger incentive.

I already have a level 2 EV charger installed in my home. Can I get the EV charger incentive?

You qualify for the EV charger incentive if your charger was purchased and installed between March 1, 2021, and December 31, 2021, and you have all the required documentation.

How do I submit my receipts?

Submit the form above to begin your incentive request process. Once you are approved, you will receive a follow-up email with instructions on how to submit your receipts and paperwork.

How do I receive my EV charger incentive?

After you complete the incentive request form, Cobb EMC will confirm your eligibility and begin processing your incentive. Based on your selection, you will receive a $250 check or bill credit on your account once the paperwork has been completed and approved. Please note that bill credits are recommended. Cobb EMC can pay out bill credits within one billing cycle (about one month), while checks may take up to three months or more.

How long does it take to receive my EV charger incentive following submission?
