State EV incentives are an ever-changing patchwork. As Georgia eliminates its EV rebate program, neighboring Tennessee is introducing one (Pennsylvania recently reinstated an existing program).
The Volunteer State’s Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has announced that, starting June 15, it will offer rebates of $2,500 for EVs, and $1,500 for PHEVs, sold or leased by Tennessee dealerships and registered in the state. The dealer must file a claim for the rebate, then pass it on to the consumer.
There is $682,500 in rebate money available, which will be paid out on a first-come, first-served basis until it runs out.
“Electric vehicles are a great alternative for Tennesseans looking to do their part in protecting the air we breathe,” TDEC Commissioner Bob Martineau said. “This rebate program is a way to assist consumers making environmentally conscious transportation decisions.”
