NH offers rebates for vehicle charging stations
CONCORD (AP) - The state and the Granite State Clean Cities Coalition are highlighting the availability of rebates to encourage the installation of electric vehicle charging stations.
The rebates are up to $12,000 for a "DC fast charger" on Interstate 93 south of Interstate 89. Those rebates are available through April 3. Rebates of up to $5,000 for Level 2 chargers will be available later for other locations.
A total of $49,000 is available for fiscal years 2015 and 2016.
The Department of Environmental Services says motor vehicles produce the majority of air pollution in the state and electric vehicles reduce harmful emissions.

Funding is through the New Hampshire Office of Energy and Planning using U.S. Department of Energy funds.
