Electric car owners (or future owners), Sierra Club Green Home has great news for you! You can get a credit of over $1,000 for installing an electric car charger in your home, among other incentives now offered in Northern Indiana.

If you live in the northern part of Indiana, you may be a customer of NIPSCO, an energy distribution company that supplies both gas and electricity. The company has taken a number of measures to work towards a cleaner environment, including a new electric car charger incentive.

Through the IN-Charge Electric Vehicle Program, NIPSCO is offering its customers an instant credit of up to $1,650 toward the installation of a residential “Level 2” charger for electric cars.  The charging time is just 4-6 hours, which is ideal for those who want to charge their vehicle overnight. If you already own an electric vehicle and want to install a charger through NIPSCO, the company is offering their customers a chance to charge up without racking up any electricity fees between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

“The IN-Charge Program makes it more cost effective and convenient for prospective electric car buyers to install a home charger,” says Karl Stanley, vice president of commercial operations for NIPSCO. “Our investment in this program is part of our overall commitment to sustainability and developing a larger charging network in the region.”

With electric vehicles currently getting 60 to 100 miles on a single charge, this is a great opportunity for Northern Indiana residents. Sierra Club Green Home is anxious to hear how many people take advantage of this pilot program, which ends in 2015.
