  • Level 2 EV chargers require a 240-volt power source. If you do not have a 240-volt power source where you are planning to plug in your charger, reach out to a licensed electrician* to install one for you.
  • If you already have a 240-volt power source, talk to a licensed electrician to make sure the charger you are selecting will work correctly with your electrical system.
  • Purchase and install the prequalified charger that you selected in step 1.
  • Many stations have a plug-in and a hard-wired option. If you select a hardwired charger, we recommend getting help with the installation from your licensed electrician.

*Your electrician must have a South Carolina LLR Mechanical Contractors License with a minimum EL2 classification.

You will need to complete the Rebate Application for Residential Level 2 EV Charger and submit it along with the following to Santee Cooper:

  • Photo of installed EV Charger
  • Photo of receipts for the charger and any electrical work completed (including parts and labor).
  • Copy of electric vehicle registration
  • Copy of Contractor’s South Carolina LLR Mechanical Contractors License with a minimum EL2 classification.
