CMP Kicks Off Incentives For Car-Charging Stations

AUGUSTA, Maine - Central Maine Power is launching a $4,000 incentive for installation of 240-volt charging stations for electric cars. So-called Level 2 chargers, which must be professionally installed, typically charge vehicles about five times faster than a typical 120-volt charger.

The pilot program, launched Tuesday, applies to locations where there would be multiple charging stations, like apartment buildings, office buildings and public garages.

The pilot program will help CMP understand which incentives work best for customers seeking to make it easier to charge electric vehicles.
