Pennsylvania offers larger EV rebates & new charging stations

Rebates focus on working-class households

Pennsylvania is trying to get more residents to go electric.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced that its offering larger consumer rebates for electric vehicles, focusing on working-class households. Customers can get $2000 to $3000 off of a new EV, compared to a previous $750 rebate.

The DEP 2022-2023 Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate program also lowered the incomes eligible for a rebate. For example, a family of two with an income of $69,000 is eligible for a $2,000 rebate for a battery electric vehicle. A family of four with an income of $55,500 is eligible for a $3,000 rebate. There’s $2 million available in the fund, aiming to get 1000 new electric vehicles on Pennsylvania roads.

The state is also installing 54 DC fast chargers in 16 locations. Local installations include four plugs at a Wawa store within one mile of U.S. 202 in Malvern, Chester County; four plugs at a Wawa store on PA-611 in Pipersville, Bucks County; four plugs at a shopping center 2 miles from Rt. 422 in Collegeville, Montgomery County; and four plugs at a Wawa on Rt. 202 in North Wales, Montgomery County.

“By reducing nitrogen oxide, carbon monoxide, particulate matter, carbon dioxide, and other pollutants from the transportation sector, we make the air quality healthier in our communities, while helping to slow down climate change and its impacts,” said DEP Acting Secretary Ramez Ziadeh.
