State Rebates Available to Help Pennsylvanians Drive Cleaner Cars

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) is offering rebates up to $2,000 for Pennsylvania residents who purchase alternative fuel vehicles. Rebates are available depending on the type of vehicle purchased. Eligible vehicles are plug-in hybrid, plug-in electric, natural gas, propane, and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.

To be eligible for a rebate, a new alternative fuel vehicle (AFV) must have a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $60,000 or less and must have an odometer reading of less than 500 miles. One-time preowned AFVs with 75,000 miles or less and a true market value of $50,000 or less are also eligible for a $750 rebate. Leased vehicles are also now eligible for rebates, a change that allows additional flexibility for residents.

An additional rebate of $500 for pre-owned vehicles is available to residents with household income below 200 percent of the federal income poverty level. 

Rebates will be awarded in the order that the request forms and required documentation are received and approved, not the date a vehicle was purchased. Consumers may submit applications up to six months after the date of purchase. Consumers should be aware that funds may be depleted before their rebate application can be processed.
