Sustainability in Transportation
The City supports sustainability in transportation by encouraging use of public transportation, walking, biking and electric or compressed natural gas vehicles. Learn more about these options below.
Electric Vehicle Charging
The City encourages installation of electric vehicle charging stations and advises customers to contact the Naperville Electric Utility before beginning the installation process. The City is offering up to a $700 rebate for a Level 2 or 3 electric vehicle charging station for residential use and up to a $500 rebate for a Level 2 or 3 charging station for nonresidential use.
There are more than 2,500 public electric vehicle charging stations in the Naperville area.

Compressed Natural Gas Fueling Station
In late 2020, the City – along with private CNG provider Trillium and refuse contractor Groot Industries – opened Naperville’s first CNG fueling station. The unstaffed station, which is open to the public 24 hours a day at 1720 W. Jefferson Ave., features multiple CNG dispensers for light- and heavy-duty fueling. In 2021, the City, Trillium and Groot received the Chicago Area Clean Cities Coalition’s Public-Private Partnership Award for the station and its presence as a cleaner energy source that helps reduce emissions from fleet vehicles.
