Publicly accessible charging stations throughout the NIPSCO territory are being deployed in a program from South Shore Clean Cities. The company is working with governments, schools, universities and nonprofits within its service territory to seek funding through the Indiana Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust Fund Program for Level 2 charging stations, with proposals due September 23.
The grant program is offering entities up to $9,000 with a 90 percent match reimbursement and nonprofit organizations up to $8,000 with an 80 percent match reimbursement for Level 2 charging stations. NIPSCO is offering a cash match of up to $500 for each successful grant application meeting certain requirements.
“NIPSCO is proud to be partnering with South Shore Clean Cities to support new charging stations across our service area,” said Kevin Kirkham, NIPSCO New Business Manager. “We are looking forward to helping our customers make environmentally-focused decisions, while making it easier to help get them where they need to go.”
Project Plug-IN eligible applicants must be NIPSCO electricity customers and members of the Northern Indiana Green Fleet Program. All applications for the program are due to South Shore Clean Cities by September 9.
