Rebates & Tax Credits
The rebates are applicable for the lease or purchase of a new electric car. Rebates are also available for electric motorcycles. These rebates are not related to your taxes. Go to the Clean Vehicle Project website for details..
Lower electricity rates
Lower electicity rates for households with EVs are also available from PG&E and the CCAs. These non-tiered, time-of-use rates apply to the entire household electric bill and can result in a significant savings for EV drivers. The cost per kilowatt hour varies based on when the electricity is being used. For example, it costs much less to charge your car during the night. Both PG&E and CCA customers can sign up at the PG&E website.
