Electric Vehicle Rebates

Considering the purchase of an electric vehicle? Now is a great time to buy! You can get anywhere from $450 to $1000 in rebates for each electrical vehicle you own.

EV Rebates

The federal government and many states are currently offering a wide variety of rebates and other incentives. Options range from tax breaks to rebates, and there are many utility companies that will give you incentives for charging during off-peak times. California has a low carbon fuel standard program which rewards drivers for using electric vehicles. In the Los Angeles area Southern California Edison and LADWP offer electric vehicle and EV charger installation rebates.

To get the rebate you need to install a Level 2 charger in your home or business.
