CSE is the statewide administrator of the Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (OCVRP), which provides incentives to consumers, nonprofits and business owners for the purchase or lease of new or used eligible zero-emission vehicles.
The program, an initiative of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, encourages Oregonians to purchase clean vehicles and progress the state toward cleaner air and its greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals. OCVRP offers rebates from $750 to $2,500 toward the purchase or lease of new or used EVs. Additionally, an income-qualified component offers low- to moderate-income participants rebates up to $5,000.
Launched in 2018, the program has $10.8 million in funding annually through 2024 from the Zero-Emission Incentive Fund.
