California Adds $4.5 Million to Clean Vehicle Rebate Funding

Rebates Will Assist Consumers Purchasing Clean Vehicles

February 28, 2013 – SACRAMENTO – The California Energy Commission today voted to expand the state’s clean-vehicle rebate program with an award of $4.5 million.

“This award will make clean-energy vehicles more affordable for all Californians,” said Energy Commission Chair Robert B. Weisenmiller. “Additionally, it builds on a productive partnership of public agencies to help make substantial progress toward a future of clean, sustainable transportation.”

The California Air Resources Board will receive $4.5 million through an interagency agreement to provide funding for the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project. This funding will be used to support purchases of light-duty zero-emission electric vehicles and light-duty plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. All vehicles must be capable of freeway operation and certified for at least four passengers. The rebate program is administered by the California Center for Sustainable Energy, which was selected by the Air Resources Board through a competitive bid process.

The California Air Resources Board has issued approximately 18,000 rebates totaling $41 million through its Clean Vehicle Rebate Program. California has accounted for about 40 percent of all purchases of plug-in electric vehicles nationwide during the past two years even though the state only constitutes 10 percent of the national vehicle market.
