Going Green in Pasadena: Embrace Electric Cars and Charging Stations

Living in the picturesque neighborhood near the iconic Rose Bowl in Pasadena, we're not only surrounded by natural beauty but also inspired to make environmentally conscious choices. That's why I'm thrilled to share some fantastic news about how Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) is making it even easier for us to go green!

EV Rebate Program:

PWP's EV rebate program is a game-changer for those of us looking to make a difference in our community. As a resident of this beautiful area, I'm excited to let you know that residential electric customers like us can receive an incredible incentive of $250 when purchasing or leasing a new or used electric vehicle (EV). But wait, there's more! If you decide to buy or lease an EV from a Pasadena auto dealer, you can unlock an additional $250 bonus rebate, totaling up to $500 in savings. Please note that this bonus isn't applicable to Tesla vehicles, given their unique direct-sale business model. However, if you're already participating in PWP's income-qualifying programs, there's an additional $1,000 incentive waiting for you, allowing you to save up to a total of $1,500.

And here's something to mark on your calendar – while the rebate on new EVs concludes on December 31, 2023, the rebates for used EVs will continue into 2024. To seize these savings, applicants must submit an online application within 180 days from the date of their EV purchase. Don't miss out on this opportunity to make the switch to cleaner and greener transportation right here in Pasadena!

Charging Station Incentives:

But PWP's commitment to sustainability doesn't stop there. They are also encouraging us to install charging stations right in our homes and businesses. As residents, we're eligible for a remarkable $600 rebate when installing a qualifying "Wi-Fi enabled" or "Internet Connected" Level 2 (240V) EV charger at our homes. And for our fellow business owners in the area, there's even more incentive – commercial electric customers can reap a substantial $3,000 rebate for installing a smart Level 2 (240V) charging station. But here's the exciting part – certain qualifying sites can earn a double-incentive bonus, potentially totaling up to $6,000 per charger. This means we have the chance to contribute to the green movement while benefiting from significant savings!

Leading the Charge:

With over 100 publicly accessible EV charging stations, PWP is leading the charge in transportation electrification. Right here in Pasadena, we have the impressive Marengo Charging Plaza, located at 155 E. Green St. It stands tall as one of the nation's largest public fast-charging EV stations, boasting a grand total of 44 chargers. This extensive network ensures that we, as residents near the Rose Bowl, have convenient access to charging infrastructure, reducing range anxiety and making sustainable travel a breeze.

PWP's Legacy of Service:

PWP has been a part of our beloved Pasadena community for over a century, and their dedication to fostering a sustainable future remains unwavering. Through meticulous planning, clean energy initiatives, and active community engagement, PWP continues to set an example in environmental stewardship, right in our own backyard.
