Electric Vehicle Rebate
For the first time ever, Burlington Electric Department is offering Burlington customers a $1,200 rebate on the purchase or lease of a new electric vehicle.
For qualifying plug-in hybrid vehicles, we are offering a $600 rebate.
We are offering this incentive as part of our effort to meet Vermont's Renewable Energy Standard, which supports utility programs that help customers reduce fossil fuel use in the heating and transportation sectors. Electric vehicles reduce fossil fuel use and can save money on fuel and maintenance costs compared to conventional gasoline-powered vehicles.
Customers can purchase a qualifying vehicle from any dealership, and submit the rebate form below.
You can compare the many EVs currently available at Drive Electric Vermont's website.
