Level 2 chargers can be installed at workplaces, apartment complexes or in areas available to the public. Fast chargers must be installed in areas available to the public, the utility said.

All chargers must have the ability to record and send data to AES Ohio, the utility stipulated.

“Our region has a great track record of automotive innovation,” Zac Elliot, AES US utilities portfolio lead, electrification, said in a release. “Now, our EV charger rebates can help deliver the power needed for the next generation of transportation.”

He added: “We look forward to working with our local partners and stakeholders to make this happen.”

AES Ohio, the former Dayton Power & Light, cited U.S. Department of Energy data, saying electric vehicles emit approximately half the emissions per mile than similar conventional vehicles, and Ohio EV drivers spend the equivalent of less than $1.10 per gallon.
