The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) encourages technologies and innovations that provide immediate air pollution emission reductions and that stimulate development and deployment of sustainable transportation. The CVRP, funded by the California Environmental Protection Agency's Air Resources Board (ARB) and administered statewide by CCSE, provides rebates of up to $2,500 for the purchase or lease of zero-emission and plug-in hybrid light-duty vehicles.
A total of $63.7 million was appropriated for FY 2009-2013 to promote the production and use of zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs), including electric, plug-in hybrid electric and fuel cell vehicles. Rebates are available for individuals, nonprofits, government entities and business owners.
The CCSE team also
- Facilitates outreach events throughout the state that explain the benefits of clean vehicles and provide information about the rebate project
- Conducts ongoing surveys of CVRP recipients to determine driving and charging habits of plug-in electric (PEV) owners
- Provides PEV adoption data and develops tools to provide key information to industry stakeholders
The CVRP received an influx of $44.5 million from new legislation that is pending the Governor's signature. This new funding has been added to the available rebate funds in anticipation of approval by the Governor.
