Why Electric Vehicles?

Transportation is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions – the sector makes up 30 percent of all emissions in the US and this remains true in Massachusetts. This includes passenger vehicles, and switching to more fuel-efficient cars can make a big difference. 

Along with reducing greenhouse gas emissions, electric vehicles (EVs) have a lot of other benefits as well. Using electricity as a fuel source is much cleaner than burning gasoline, and this reduces pollutants like particulate matter which can be harmful to your health. You can even save money by switching from a traditional car! If you’re considering buying or renting an electric vehicle or are interested in learning more, check out some of the resources below.

EV Resources

The Green Energy Consumers Alliance has many resources and lots of information on electric vehicles and clean energy in New England. You can read testimonials from electric vehicle owners, and access a handy buying guide to compare EV models.

The Massachusetts Offers Rebates for Electric Vehicles (MOR-EV) program is also a great resource, with more information as well as incentives for driving EVs. Check out the program to learn more and apply for up to $2,500 for the purchase or lease of new electric vehicles, including battery and fuel-cell electric vehicles, and up to $1,500 for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.

The US Department of Energy provides information on federal tax incentives for purchasing used and new electric vehicles. EV owners may be eligible for up to $7,500 in tax credits for new vehicles and up to $4,000 in tax credits for used vehicles.
