Electric Vehicle (EV) Incentives in Delaware

Tax incentives and/or other incentives for drivers of electric vehicles in DE.


Vehicle-to-Grid Energy Credit

Retail electricity customers with at least one grid-integrated electric vehicle (EV) may qualify to receive kilowatt-hour credits for energy discharged to the grid from the EV’s battery at the same rate that the customer pays to charge the battery. A grid-integrated EV is defined as a battery-powered motor vehicle that has the ability for two-way power flow between the vehicle and the electric grid as well as communications hardware and software that allow for external control of battery charging and discharging.
