PG&E launches $500 rebate for EV-driving customers

Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E), which serves some 16 million people in Northern and Central California, has launched an incentive program for residential electric customers who drive EVs.

The Clean Fuel Rebate is a one-time rebate of $500 per vehicle. All PG&E residential customers who own or lease an EV or PHEV are eligible. Through California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard program, PG&E generates credits for the clean electricity it provides to customers who charge EVs at home. After selling these credits to regulated parties, PG&E returns the revenue to customers through the new program.

Customers of other electric utilities in California may be eligible for a similar rebate.

PG&E is also partnering with EV charging companies to build out charging infrastructure in its territory, with a particular focus on workplaces, multi-unit dwellings and disadvantaged communities.
