EV Charging Incentives for Virginia

April 13, 2023

Virginia is moving into the fast lane on electric vehicles (EVs). The Commonwealth approved measures to adopt new vehicle emissions standards and EV sales targets; legislators are looking for ways to fund EV adoption incentives; and, a recent study by ACEEEE gave Virginia the highest marks of any state in the southeast on transportation electrification. New EV infrastructure is needed to support this market movement.

There are a number of incentives to support the installation of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) in Virginia. Municipalities, property managers, and other infrastructure interests can explore them to ensure they are ready to support this growing market segment.
