Last week, the Michigan House of Representatives introduced bills designed to promote the sale and adoption of electric vehicles, as well as reduce the cost of installing an electric vehicle charger.
In sum, House Bill 6054 would create an electric vehicle rebate program for Michigan residents who purchase an electric vehicle (EV). An applicant who submits an application within 120 days of buying an EV is eligible to receive a rebate up to $2,000.
House Bill 6055 would create a similar application process for purchasers of an electric vehicle charger. An applicant who submits an application for the purchase and installation of “at-home charging equipment” within that same 120-day period would be eligible to receive a rebate up to $500.
