Vermont Cheddar: Get $200 for a New E-Bike

vermont bicycle tour - e-bike incentives

With the passage of House bill H.433 (Act 55), Vermont has officially become the first US state to launch an e-bike incentive program to make the e-mobility transition even easier.

The New England dairy state has authorized up to $50,000 in one-time-use monies from its Transportation Fund to provide up to 250 $200 rebates specifically for the purchase of electric bicycles (“e-bikes“) in fiscal year 2022, giving e-curious commuters fully two-hundred more reasons to consider getting a new e-bike.

As good as that news is, there’s a lot more great stuff in Vermont’s Act 55 for the e-mobility revolution. The state’s Agency of Transportation is working with a California-based nonprofit called Center for Sustainable Energy (“CSE”) to develop a number of state-level incentives to help make the transition to electric vehicles easier for everyone in the state.

These incentives include up to $3 million in income-based rebates for the lease or purchase of new plug-in hybrid (PHEVs) or battery-electric vehicles (BEVs). The short version is that individuals making less than $50,000 would be eligible for $4,000 from the state of VT, in addition to any Federal or local utility-based incentives that might be available.
