CSE is the statewide administrator of the Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (OCVRP), an initiative of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. OCVRP provides incentives to consumers, nonprofits and business owners for the purchase or lease of new or used eligible zero-emission vehicles. It launched in 2018—and has $10.8 million in funding annually through 2024. The program encourages Oregonians to purchase clean vehicles and progress the state toward cleaner air and its greenhouse gas emissions reduction goals.
Funded by the Zero-Emission Incentive Fund, 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.
