Alabama Power offers customers two incentives to support electric vehicle adoption

BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 21, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Alabama Power offers two incentives for residential customers who own or are considering purchasing an electric vehicle to save money when they charge their vehicle at home.

"These incentives are one way we are helping customers to innovate their lifestyle and achieve long-term energy savings," said Tony Smoke, senior vice president of Marketing and Economic Development. "As technology advances and the needs of our customers evolve, we are focused on providing new ways to assist them."

EV Home Charger Rebate
Customers can receive a one-time $500 rebate for the purchase and installation of a Level 2 (240V) charger at their home. EV home charging provides an affordable and convenient way to charge. Adding a Level 2 charger allows owners to charge up to 10 times faster than a Level 1 (120V) charger.
