What is PowerMIDrive™?
PowerMIDrive™ is a multi-year program created by Consumers Energy to prepare Michigan for increased electric vehicle use. The program will ensure the electric grid is prepared for the growing electric vehicle market. PowerMIDrive™ will provide rebates for drivers to install electric vehicle charging stations in their homes, and to businesses who install public chargers.
Answers About PowerMIDrive

The following rebates will be available to eligible residents and charging site hosts:
If you installed a residential level 2 charging station in the past 12 months you may be eligible for the rebate. The installed stations must have data sharing capability and be compatible with approved networks. Further details will be provided when PowerMIDrive™ begins.
PowerMIDrive™ is scheduled to launch in Early Summer 2019.
