Vehicle Purchaser Eligibility
To be eligible for a Drive Clean Rebate, a Vehicle Purchaser must purchase or lease an eligible vehicle from a Participating Dealer and be a New York State resident or licensed to do business in the State. The vehicle must be in the Purchaser’s ownership for 36 months, unless receiving approval from NYSERDA to sell the vehicle, with proper New York State DMW registration and vehicle insurance. NYSERDA must be able to verify registration with the DMV, the vehicle identification number (VIN), and share the vehicle model and associated address with the electric distribution utility servicing that location. Purchaser must agree to never modify the vehicle’s emission control system, engine, engine hardware, software calibrations, or electric drive system. Purchaser must also agree to participate in online surveys and other research efforts that support program goals and agree to reimburse the dealer if it is discovered the Purchaser provided information resulting in the rebate being denied
How to Apply
To locate Participating Dealers in Westchester and surrounding counties, prospective purchasers can filter NYSERDA’s list of participating dealers by county. When purchasing the car, notify the dealer that you would like to follow the Drive Clean Rebate for Plug-In Electric Cars application process and they will assist in procuring the rebate.
