Our members have driven over one million electric miles, just about every model out there, and charged in every setting from single family homes to apartments.

Maintained summary of federal EV incentives.
Maryland offers a 40% rebate of up to $700 residential, $4000 commerical on the purchase and installation of an EVSE (AKA "charger"). Maryland no longer offers an excise tax credit on EVs, however the HOV access sticker is available until 9/30/22.
Virginia offers an HOV lane exemption, and an emissions inspection exemption. In addition, Virginia collects a flat $109 "highway use fee" for EV's, even if driven at levels where a gas car would pay less than $109 in gas tax.
Your electric utility likely offers a combination of incentives on the purchase and installation of chargers both at home and in condos and apartments, reduced time-of-use electric rates for your EV, and other perks.
