Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles

 

The Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE) is the statewide administrator for the Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles(MOR-EV) program that aims to provide air pollution emission reductions for the commonwealth by increasing the use of zero-emission electric vehicles.

The program promotes greater adoption and use of EVs, including battery-only, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell electric vehicles through outreach and education with a variety of partners including consumers and dealers.

Funded by the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs' Department of Energy Resources, the program provides rebates up to $2,500 for the purchase or lease of light-duty electric vehicles and motorcycles.

“CSE provides tremendous value, from its highly skilled program design work to its streamlined and secure incentive program administration. And the data and feedback CSE provides helps us continuously improve our MOR-EV program so that we spend only what we need to reach our goals,” Daniel Gatti, Director of Clean Transportation Policy, Massachusetts Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs
