The City of Winfield is now offering rebates for customers who install level 2 electric car charging stations at their homes or businesses.
Customers can earn a rebate up to $1,500 for installing a charging station, according to information provided by Winfield City Manager Taggart Wall.
The car charging stations are a new addition to other rebate programs offered by the city.
“We are pleased to be on the front end of this evolving change in the electric industry,” Wall said.
The rebate is offered by the City of Winfield and the Kansas Power Pool. There are several other rebate programs that encourage installation of new, high-efficiency electric products, including air conditioners, heat pumps and water heaters.
There is also an energy efficiency program for commercial customers. Commercial customers can earn a rebate of up to $500 for installing energy-efficient items.
These programs are designed to encourage efficiency through energy conservation and increased customer awareness, according to the information provided by Wall.
