Global electric vehicle (EV) sales increased by more than 30% in 2023, and EVs continue to rise in popularity. Available incentives and lower maintenance costs are two reasons people choose electric, with economic benefits from the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) Drive Clean Rebate and a federal tax benefit of $7,500 for eligible cars.

Individuals aren’t the only ones who benefit from incentives. NYSERDA’s Charge Ready 2.0 offers incentives to public, private, and not-for-profit organizations that install Level 2 EV charging stations at workplaces, multi-unit dwellings (MUDs), or public facilities owned and operated by municipal or state government entities. The City of Rochester has already transitioned much of its fleet to electric vehicles, saving taxpayers’ dollars,

We know individuals and businesses are switching to EVs, but what are they doing once their fleet has gone electric? They’re going solar, with over 30% of EV owners also having a rooftop solar system installed,

Here are a few benefits of pairing EVs with solar:

  • Charge cheaply. Solar is the most cost-effective electricity source and reduces the cost of an EV owner’s fuel.
  • Build resiliency and energy independence. Solar and storage paired together can ensure your vehicle will charge even when the power grid goes out.
  • Reduce your carbon footprint. Not only is solar the cheapest energy source, but it’s also one of the cleanest. Charge your EV with your own local, clean energy and lessen the environmental impact of your household.
