Valley Clean Energy plans to open up its electric vehicle rebate program in mid-September this year.  If you receive electricity services from VCE and qualified for a rebate from CVRP, you might be eligible to receive an additional $2,000 or up to $4,000 if you are an income qualified applicant. That stacks up to some serious savings! VCE encourages you to apply early because funds are limited. The program will continue only until rebate funds are exhausted. Applications will be considered on a first come, first served basis.

The VCE program will add another layer of rebates and incentives for people who buy or lease new electric vehicles. Taken together with the state and federal incentives already in place, you can save a bundle when you step into a fossil fuel-free drive!

  • California Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP)  rebates for buyers and lease holders, including electric trucks and  motorcycles. Due to recent price increases, Tesla vehicles are no longer eligible for CVRP. Tesla orders placed on or before March 15, 2022 may qualify. Check website for current rebates.
  • Federal tax credit up to $7,500 for buyers of new EVs (IRS form 8936) (watch for updates on their website). Congress recently passed new legislation—the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022—which changes credit amounts and requirements for clean energy vehicles.
