Electric Vehicles

Electric vehicles (EVs) are playing a growing role in reducing our dependency on fossil fuels and protecting our environment. Among the benefits EV owners enjoy:

  • Financial incentives for purchasing an EV:
    • Federal tax incentives allow up to $7,500 in federal tax credit for an EV purchase
    • Lower fuel and maintenance costs. Even at today’s low gas prices, charging during off-peak hours on a special EV rate may provide about 40 percent savings compared to a mid-sized gasoline-powered sedan.
    • Special discount electric rates for EV charging that may help further reduce fuel costs
    • State incentives such as free parking in government lots and spaces and access to HOV lanes
  • A personal commitment to using clean energy
    • Reduced need for oil imports as clean renewable energy is increasingly added to the grid
    • Reduced emissions and noise pollution
  • Being at the cutting edge of automotive and green vehicle technology
