AMP Residential EV Charger Rebate up to $800

Purchase and install a level 2 (240V) electric vehicle charger at home and receive a rebate reward card worth up to $800.

AMP is offering this cash rebate to encourage residential customers to take advantage of AMP’s 100% clean energy by charging their EVs at a home charger in Alameda.

Level 2 chargers, known as electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE), provide charging through a 240V AC plug. Level 2 charging provides about 10 to 60 miles of range to an electric vehicle’s battery per hour of charging time, making it quicker and more convenient than standard 120V AC charging, which provides only about 2 to 5 miles per hour of charging.

This rebate can be used for the purchase, installation and/or permitting of a new, permanently installed level 2 home charger.
