Indiana Michigan Power recently announced details of its IM Plugged In program that offers incentives to Indiana residential customers for installing charging equipment. Participating
customers also receive discounted rates for charging their EVs overnight.

IM Plugged In makes charging EVs more affordable and inviting to Hoosier customers as they choose their transportation options. IM Plugged In helps provide customers the convenience of being able to wake up every morning to a fully charged vehicle.

I&M is offering Hoosiers a $500 incentive toward the cost of wiring a residential EV meter. The rebate helps reduce the costs of installing a charger to take advantage of our lower rates and is available to Indiana customers for new and existing equipment.

In a new partnership with I&M, HomeServe helps streamline the process by arranging for an electrical contractor to install the charging equipment and also offers a home wiring protection plan.

IM Plugged In also offers Indiana residential customers an overnight charging rate 33% below standard rates. The rate is available for Hoosiers who charge their vehicle between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. Charging overnight at the lower off-peak rate creates savings that can equal up to driving 4,700 miles annually with zero fuel costs.

IM Plugged In has a separate program that helps business customers provide charging to their employees and for their fleet vehicles. The IM Plugged In commercial rebate is $250 for each charging port installed at qualified businesses.

Incentives are also available for multi-unit apartment buildings.

To participate, Hoosier residential customers need to install a charger and wiring that allows I&M to place a meter near the charging station to measure only EV charging. I&M’s $500 incentive payment for residential charging equipment helps offset the cost of the additional wiring for the meter. Importantly, customers are eligible for this rebate even if they already have an EV charger installed.

Details about the program and the many benefits of EVs are available at
www.IndianaMichiganPower.com/ElectricVehicles. Business customers can find more specific information about how IM Plugged In can help at the Web site and scrolling down to “Charge at Work in Indiana.”

  1. Why can’t I get a discounted rate for my regular electric usage? There isn’t enough generating capacity to charge the expected electric vehicles and allow normal usage. this will not end well for anybody.
