Clean Vehicle Rebate Project

By February 13, 2013 No Comments

The clean vehicle rebate project is funded by the California Environmental Protection Agency’s Air Resources Board and administered statewide by the California Center for Sustainable Energy. A total of $26.1 million has been appropriated for FY 2009-2012 to promote the production and use of zero-emission vehicles, including electric, plug-in hybrid electric, and fuel cell vehicles.


Rebates of up to $2,500 per light-duty vehicle are available for individuals and business owners who purchase or lease new eligible zero-emission or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.


The vehicle must be new as defined in the California Vehicle Code (CVC) section 430 and must be:
• Manufactured by the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) or its authorized licensee.
• Vehicles considered new vehicles solely for determination of compliance with state emissions standards are not eligible.
• The vehicle must be on the List of Eligible Vehicles (available at www.cvrp.energycenter.org) on the date of purchase or lease.
