  • Empower Mobility

    We want to expand electric mobility access to communities with the greatest need. Public charging stations provide community benefits, such as a reduction in carbon emissions and other harmful air pollutants, by empowering drivers to switch from gas-powered vehicles to cleaner electric vehicles.

    Empower Mobility incentives

    Customer-owned projects whose sites directly serve and/or benefit historically underrepresented communities may be eligible for enhanced incentives and service.

    PSE will provide upfront incentives covering 100 percent of charger and installation costs up to $4,000 per Level 2 port and $100,000 per DC fast charging port.

    Empower Mobility eligibility

    To be eligible for Empower Mobility incentives, the installation site must directly serve and/or benefit historically underrepresented communities, also known as named communities. Named communities include both highly impacted communities and vulnerable populations.

    Highly impacted communities are comprised of census tracts designated by the Washington State Department of Health as a 9 or 10 on the Environmental Health Disparities Map or communities located in census tracts that are fully or partially on “Indian country” as defined in 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1151.

    Vulnerable populations are communities that experience a disproportionate cumulative risk from environmental burdens due to adverse socioeconomic factors, including disability, cardiovascular disease, low birth weight rates, higher rates of hospitalization, heat islands, arrearage/disconnections, access to digital/internet resources, access to food, access to health care, educational attainment level, estimated energy burden, historical red line influence, home care, housing burden, linguistic isolation, mental health/illness, poverty, race, renter vs owner, seniors with fixed income, transportation expenses and unemployment.

    The list of vulnerability factors and resultant mapping may change as PSE’s Clean Energy Implementation Plan evolves.

    Please see the program eligibility and requirements section for additional participation criteria.
