CSE is the administrator of a suite of clean transportation incentive programs for the state of Vermont that provides residents more affordable transportation options and helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Incentive offerings vary based on the program, type of vehicle and income-qualifying requirements. Most incentives can be combined with other state clean vehicle programs and stacked with local utility programs for even greater cost savings. The programs are:
Incentives for New PEVs – Offers $1,500 to $4,000 for purchasing or leasing eligible hybrid or all-battery plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). The higher amounts require low-income eligibility.
Replace Your Ride – Incentives of $3,000 for income-eligible residents who retire an at least 10-year-old vehicle and switch to a new or used PEV.
Incentive Program for eBikes – Rebates of $250-$400 for electric bicycles (e-bikes) for income-qualified purchasers – the nation’s first statewide electric bike incentive program.
CSE helped design and develop the programs and is responsible for their operations.
"We look forward to working with CSE to expand our program offerings and ensure options are available for all Vermonters," – Michele Boomhower, Division Director, Agency of Transportation, Policy, Planning & Intermodal Development
