Sarasota County has a history of leadership on Electric Vehicles (EVs). Recognizing the myriad potential benefits of EVs, the county has expressed support through resolutions, installation of charging stations and education programs since 2005. Sarasota County was the first local government in Florida to add EVs to its fleet and now is second in the state for number of EVs per capita.
NEW! Sarasota County recently approved the ChargeUP! Sarasota County program, which provides rebates to certain types of businesses, non-profits and local governments within Sarasota County to buy and install EV charging stations. Participants in this limited program may be eligible for one of the following rebates for a new, publicly available station:
- Non-profits or government organizations: 50 percent of cost, up to $4,000 maximum.
- Businesses: 25 percent of cost, up to $2,000 maximum.
The application period is now open until the limited funds have been committed. Learn more and apply with the following documents:
