DOVER — With automakers expanding their lines of electric vehicles, and as more state residents transition to clean transportation alternatives, the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control is extending its Clean Transportation Incentive Program through June 30, 2022.
Since Jan. 1, the program has processed 288 applications for rebates. In 2020, 401 applications totaling $885,000 were processed.
Vehicle electrification is a leading strategy in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from transportation.
Rebates for the purchase or lease of electric vehicles include:
Businesses and property owners of multi-unit dwellings can also take advantage of the rebate program by installing charging stations for customers and tenants to help in the transition to vehicle electrification. The program pays up to 90% of the cost of the charging station, with a maximum amount of $3,500 per port/$7,000 per station for public properties, fleets and multi-unit dwellings. Rebates are also available for natural-gas and propane vehicles.
Delaware’s Clean Transportation Incentive Program is made possible through the state’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative. More information about the rebates can be found here.
