Delaware Extends Electric Vehicle Rebate Program

DOVER, Del. — The state of Delaware is extending its popular Clean Vehicle Rebate Program through the end of the year. The program had been set to expire June 30.

The program, which is administered by the state’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control, has been in place since July 2015.

In the first round of funding, which lasted until Oct. 31, 2016, the program paid out 292 rebates. By comparison, the program has paid out 267 rebates in the first four months of this year.

In total, almost 2,500 rebates have been issued since the program began. 


“As new and existing manufacturers introduce more electric vehicles to their lineups, more consumers are making the switch,” said Gov. John Carney, a Democrat, in a written statement. “Our Clean Transportation Incentive Program is helping to make the transition more affordable for more Delawareans.”


 Rebates for the purchase or lease of electric vehicles include:

  • $2,500 for battery electric vehicles, including vehicles with range extenders, with a total vehicle price of $60,000 or less;
  • $1,000 for plug-in hybrid electric vehicles with a total vehicle price of $60,000 or less.

“The continuing popularity of the electric vehicle rebate program, along with the benefits to the environment through reduced greenhouse gas emissions, are among the reasons why we are extending the program through the end of 2022,” said DNREC Secretary Shawn Garvin in the same statement.

Clean transportation is a strategy identified in Delaware’s Climate Action Plan to reduce harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

Businesses and property owners of multi-unit dwellings can also take advantage of the rebate program by installing charging stations for customers and tenants to help in the transition to vehicle electrification. 


The Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program pays up to 90% of the cost of the charging station, with a max amount of $3,500 per port/$7,000 per station for public properties, fleets and multi-unit dwellings. Rebates are also available for natural gas and propane vehicles.
