Electric Vehicle (EV) Rebate Program Working Group
The Virginia Department of Mines, Minerals, and Energy in collaboration with the Department of Environmental Quality, Department of Taxation, and the Department of Motor Vehicles will convene a working group to evaluate the feasibility of an EV rebate program. The working group will:
- Review methods for structuring and administering an EV rebate program;
- Review funding options;
- Evaluate vehicle sales data in states that offer EV rebates,
- Identify metrics for evaluating an EV rebate program for incentives under $4,500, and;
- Recommend incentives for low-income individuals.
The working group published a report with program recommendations to the Virginia General Assembly on November 1, 2020. The EV rebate program must be operational by December 30, 2021, or when funding is available.
