State, Local and Utility Incentives

Depending on your location, state and local utility incentives may be available for electric vehicles and solar systems. Most rebates can either be claimed after purchase or reflected as a reduction in the price of your purchase.

Many states also offer non-cash incentives for electric vehicles, such as carpool lane access and free municipal parking.

Some communities and utility companies also offer additional incentives through cash back, discounted rate plans and other credits.
