Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC)

We make EV fast-charging equipment more affordable for property owners. Our DCFC program offers program-funded utility-side infrastructure upgrades and customer-side infrastructure rebates. EV charging equipment rebates are also available.

Program Overview 

The DCFC Program is available to publicly accessible, short dwell time (less than 2 hours) properties who choose to purchase and install two or more DCFC charging stations. The program covers the utility-side infrastructure upgrades and offers a rebate to help offset a portion of your cost of the customer-side infrastructure upgrades. Charging equipment rebates are also available to offset the purchase and installation of qualifying charging equipment.


How It Works

SCE will perform all the necessary utility-side of the meter infrastructure work. All participants will be required to design, procure, install, and maintain the customer-side infrastructure themselves. Participants will qualify for a rebate that covers a portion of the customer-side infrastructure work. This rebate amount will be determined and presented to participants after site assessment, but prior to commitment to the program.
