Menu of Plug-In Electric Vehicle Incentives

The Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) has compiled this menu of incentives for states to use as a tool when researching ways to reduce barriers and promote electric vehicle use. Most states offer one or more incentives for consumers, businesses, or government entities to purchase and use plug‐in electric vehicles (PEV) or electric vehicle charging stations (also known as electric vehicle supply equipment, or EVSE).

Incentives are listed by state on the Department of Energy’s Alternative Fuel Data Center website, and information on each state’s incentives is also typically available on the host state agency’s website. This menu is a broad overview of the types of PEV incentives that states can and do offer, and is a resource for state policy makers who are seeking new ideas for ways that their state may promote PEV adoption.
