The Delaware Clean Vehicle Rebate Program

Purpose

The purpose of the Clean Vehicle Rebate Program is to provide incentives for Delawareans and Delaware businesses to purchase or lease alternative fuel vehicles. This program encourages the deployment of electric, natural gas, and propane  powered vehicles and is aligned with Delaware’s commitment to innovation in the transportation sector, reducing greenhouse gases, and improving Delaware’s air quality.  To view a map of the current public charging stations in Delaware, please click here.

This program complements the Delaware Electric Vehicle Charging Equipment Rebate Program which provides rebates for Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations.
