Black Hills Ener­gy Spot­lights EV Charg­ing Rebates Dur­ing Nation­al Dri­ve Elec­tric Week

PUEBLO, Colo. – Sept. 22, 2022 – Dur­ing Nation­al Dri­ve Elec­tric Week, Sept. 23 through Oct. 2, Black Hills Ener­gy is plac­ing the spot­light on its Ready EV pro­gram and the resources avail­able to help dri­vers make the switch to an elec­tric vehicle.

“With rebates for home and busi­ness EV charg­ing equip­ment, Black Hills Ener­gy is mak­ing elec­tric vehi­cle charg­ing more con­ve­nient, more afford­able and more acces­si­ble for cus­tomers,” said Erik Lun­deen, Black Hills Energy’s EV pro­gram man­ag­er. “With the growth of charg­ing infra­struc­ture in our com­mu­ni­ties, an elec­tric vehi­cle is quick­ly becom­ing a car for everyone.”

“Our Ready EV pro­gram is designed to help open doors to EV own­er­ship so our cus­tomers can start enjoy­ing the cost sav­ings asso­ci­at­ed with dri­ving elec­tric,” added Lun­deen. “Not only are elec­tric vehi­cles eas­i­er on the wal­let in terms of fuel sav­ings and low­er main­te­nance costs, but they also pro­vide impor­tant envi­ron­men­tal ben­e­fits in terms of clean­er air qual­i­ty for all to enjoy.”

"With rebates to sig­nif­i­cant­ly low­er the cost of EV charg­ing equip­ment, upfront elec­tric vehi­cle pur­chase rebates for income-qual­i­fied cus­tomers, and a new time-of-day rate option to sup­port EV charg­ing, we are very pleased to sup­port our cus­tomers as they make the tran­si­tion to an elec­tric vehi­cle,” said Lundeen.

Ready EV is a pro­gram avail­able to Col­orado res­i­dents and busi­ness­es receiv­ing elec­tric ser­vice from Black Hills Ener­gy. Learn more at
