Electric Vehicle Incentive Program

The City of Fremont has received grant funds from the Nebraska Environmental Trust for an electric vehicle incentive program.  The purpose of the incentive is to populate a pilot program to study the effects electric vehicle charging has on our electric system and to encourage off peak charging. In exchange for sharing their electric vehicle charging data, participants will receive an incentive of $4,500.

To qualify for the incentive, participants must:

  • Be a residential Fremont Department of Utilities electric customer
    • Electric vehicle and charging station must be licensed and registered at utility service address
    • Utility service address must have wireless internet connectivity
  • Submit Reservation Application prior to purchase and/or installation
    • Reservations expire if purchase and installation deadlines are not met
  • Upon receipt of approved Reservation Application:
    • Purchase a new, all-electric vehicle (hybrids not allowed) within the incentive timeframe
    • Purchase and activate a qualified ChargePoint home charging station within the time allowed. Charging stations must be purchased at: www.etpnebraska.com/fremont
  • Submit payment application after purchase, installation, and activation completed.  Documents to be included with payment application are:
    • Auto dealer invoice
    • Dodge County vehicle registration
    • Data Release Authorization
    • W9
    • Proof of purchase and registration of ChargePoint EV home charger
 The City of Fremont Electric Vehicle Incentive Program will run from July 1, 2019 through June 1, 2020, or until grant funds have been depleted, whichever is soonest.  Data will be collected by ChargePoint and shared with the Fremont Department of Utilities for a period of three (3) years.    

Participants are required to complete a reservation application prior to purchasing an electric vehicle for the incentive to confirm there are still incentive dollars available.  Participants would then have seven (7) days from the date of the reservation application to purchase the electric vehicle and provide proof of the purchase.  Participants also then have 90 days from the date of the reservation application to purchase and activate their ChargePoint home charging station. 

The incentive will be issued to participants once the required forms and actions have been completed by the participant.
