As of July 2020, MCE’s electric vehicle charging infrastructure rebate program, MCEv, has supported the installation of more than 550 Level 2 charging ports, with an additional 450+ ports still planned or under construction. Since the inception of the program, MCE has increased public Level 2 charging capacity by 40% across its service area, meeting one of the original program goals.
“MCE has focused on workplace and multifamily charging because it provides the greatest benefit to customers and the environment,” said Dawn Weisz, MCE CEO. “Making EV charging more accessible to customers who are currently unable to charge at home will make EVs a reasonable choice for more customers. Also, EV drivers at these locations are more likely to charge in the middle of the day, using renewable solar energy being produced at that time.”
