On July 14, 2021, National Grid (MA) proposed a $278 million Phase III EV Program. The program supports public, workplace, residential, and fleet chargers and includes support for make-ready costs as well as EVSE and networking costs. The program also includes incentives for electric school buses and includes a budget for utility-side system expansion to accommodate large charging loads from fleet electrification. The program also includes fleet advisory services. The program includes carve-outs and enhanced incentives for underserved communities (called environmental justice communities in the filing) throughout. The program could support nearly 400 DCFC and more than 31,200 Level 2 ports. The program includes EV rates.
