Indiana Michigan Power’s New Electric Vehicle Program Expected To Help Hoosiers

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) — National Drive Electric Week, Sept. 25 to Oct. 3, is a nationwide celebration to raise awareness of the many benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid cars, trucks, motorcycles, and more.

As the focus is on the advantages of electric vehicles (EVs), and Indiana Michigan Power (I&M) on Thursday announced details of its "IM Plugged In" program. It offers incentives to Indiana residential customers for installing charging 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.

"IM Plugged In" Program Overview

  • I&M has a $500 incentive and discounted off-peak charging rates for residential Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs) in our Indiana service area. I&M customers with electric vehicles (EVs) registered in Indiana with existing Level 2 PEV chargers or looking to install a new Level 2 charger are eligible
  • I&M’s incentive helps offset the cost to install a new Level 2 charger and sub-meter wiring to measure offpeak PEV charging.
  • This allows PEV charging from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily to be discounted 33% from our standard residential per kilowatt hour rate.
