Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday, November 3, to celebrate the opening of the Arroyo EV Charging Depot.
By News Desk
The Depot, at 64 East Glenarm Street, is Pasadena’s second fast-charging electric vehicle site, co-developed with PWP and Tesla. The event will feature speeches from dignitaries, an official ribbon-cutting and photo-op, and a showcase of electric vehicles from local Pasadena car dealerships. The event was not open to the public.
The Depot hosts twenty Tesla V3 Superchargers and six “Power Up Pasadena”-branded chargers.
Incentives for Electric Vehicles
Pasadena Water and Power offers Electric Vehicle and Charger incentives for residential electric customers:
- Customers can receive a rebate up to $250 when they purchase or lease a new or used plug-in electric vehicle (EV).
- An additional $1000 is available for customers currently participating in PWP’s income-qualifying programs.
- Additionally, customers can receive a $600 rebate when they install a qualifying “Wi-Fi enabled” EV charger, or a $200 rebate when they install a standard (Non Wi-Fi) EV charger in their home.
- For Commercial Electric customers: Non-residential electric customers can receive rebates of up to $6,000 per port for installing smart EV chargers.
- Customers can receive an additional $250 bonus rebate if they purchase or lease an EV from a Pasadena auto dealer.
(Since Tesla relies on a direct-sale business model where the transaction is completed entirely online, the Pasadena auto dealer bonus will not apply to the purchase of a Tesla.)
The California “Clean Vehicle Rebate Program” administered by the Center for Sustainable Energy for the California Air Resources Board (CARB), provides monetary rebates of up to $7,000 for the purchase or lease of new electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
A Federal Tax Credit of up to $7,500 per vehicle is available for the first 200,000 PEVs from each automaker.
