Electric Vehicle Charger Rebates

Thinking about purchasing an electric vehicle (EV)?  Consider installing an EV charger and receive a rebate from Corn Belt Energy. Corn Belt Energy offers a $200 rebate for the installation of a 240volt 50 amp EV circuit in an existing home.* New construction is not eligible for this rebate. Members must enroll in the 1 EV time-of-use electric rate.

*Must participate in Corn Belt Energy’s EV time of use rate to qualify.

Corn Belt Energy is proud to support the growing adoption of Electric Vehicles throughout our service territory. The Electric Vehicle (EV) industry has experienced rapid growth over the past few years, and the International Energy Agency predicts that by 2030, there will be anywhere from 125 to 220 million electric vehicles on the road worldwide*.

As your electric service provider, it is important for us to maintain a working knowledge of the upcoming growth and development within the EV industry. Most EV owners do the majority of their vehicle charging at home, which will mean a growing increase in home energy use. Our goal is to both encourage our members to explore EV’s as a great economical, and environmentally-friendly, option for transportation, as well as stay ahead of the potential energy growth, in order to prevent potential strain on our electric grid.

Corn Belt Energy has 2 electric vehicles in their fleet; Rivian R1T and a Ford F-150 Lightning.
