Support for Charge Up Michigan's DC Fast Charging Network
The Charge Up Michigan Program is an EV Charger Placement project that aims to build the infrastructure for DC fast charging stations in the state of Michigan to ensure feasibility of all long distance trips for electric vehicle (EV) users, within the state, and also to neighboring states and Canada.
To achieve this, the Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) and partners I&M will provide funding for qualified DCFC EV charging equipment, site preparation, equipment installation, networking fees and signage.
In collaboration with EGLE, applications are first submitted to I&M to review for:
(1) alignment with EGLE identified site/node locations,
(2) alignment with I&M service territory, and
(3) impact on current and future load requirements on I&M energy infrastructure.
Once reviewed and approved, developers are notified to apply to Charge Up Michigan program for further review and ultimate approval.
I&M’s rebate at the site level can be up to $20,000, contingent on EGLE approval of the site for the Charge Up program.
