The state of New Jersey has launched a $725,000 grant program to encourage installation of workplace EV charging stations.

The It Pay$ to Plug In program offers grants for workplace chargers on a first-come basis: up to $250 for a Level 1 charging station, and up to $5,000 for a Level 2 station. DC fast chargers will not be covered by the program.

Both public and private entities are eligible for the grants.

According to the state Board of Public Utilities, there are currently 398 charging outlets at 181 locations in New Jersey.

The state has also set up a new web site called Drive Green New Jersey that offers information about the new program, and about EVs in general.
