Santee Cooper has extended the deadline to apply for its new EVolve Electric Vehicle Commercial Grant Program. Businesses now have until Sept. 30 to submit an application.

The program is available to Santee Cooper commercial customers and will offer grants of up to $25,000 designed to help transform the utility’s service area, which includes the Grand Strand, into electric vehicle-friendly destinations.

There is $100,000 available for EVolve grants in 2022, and selected projects will receive grants of up to $25,000. Customers can apply for EV projects in one of four categories:

  • Make-Ready Research.
  • Education and Outreach.
  • Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure.
  • Electric Fleet Conversion.

Applications will be competitive and undergo an evaluation by an independent third party, with the highest scoring projects receiving funding. Criteria for scoring includes project feasibility, proposed use of funds, innovation, community benefits, matching funds, and equity.
