Progress Energy has launched their Plugged In Program to install 240-volt residential charging stations at the homes of customers who have purchased plug-in electric vehicles. The program will cover the station purchase and installation costs up to $1,500. Progress Energy will own, service and maintain the charging station until the program ends in April 2013. During the program, Progress Energy will remotely access data from the charging station to better understand collective charging habits and the impact on the power grid. Ownership of these stations will pass to participants after April 2013.

Duke Energy is also subsidizing charging station installation for their own residential customers who purchase electric vehicles.
