What is the EV Program?

The Electric Vehicle (EV) Program is a way to offset expenses for customers who have made the environmentally conscious decision to purchase an electric vehicle or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV).

The program is a collaboration between CEL, MMWEC, and local dealerships. Customers who live in a participating MLP territory may be eligible for a dealer discount, click here and check the dealership flyers for details. 

CEL is also offering our customers a free level 2 charger for electric vehicle (EV) owners, or a $200-$300 rebate incentive on qualifying level 2 chargers for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) owners enrolled in the Scheduled Charging Program; plus a monthly bill credit for allowing us to control the charger during peak periods.

What is a Scheduled Charging Program?

Customers who agree to participate in the Scheduled Charging Program allow their vehicle charging to be reduced during peak hours from 5:00-9:00 p.m. on non-holiday weekdays. This period of time coincides with peak energy and fossil fuel usage for CEL and New England as a whole.
