NYSERDA Rebate Program Stimulates Dramatic Boost in Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Sales
To ensure that your customers are benefitting from this new program when purchasing or leasing a ZEV, please confirm that you are both registered with NYSERDA to participate and that you are submitting the requisite paperwork within 60 days
In April of 2017 the State initiated a Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Rebate Program to stimulate the sale and lease of ZEV vehicles, which include both Battery Emission Vehicles (BEVs) as well as Plug in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs). Through this program, which was strongly supported by NYSADA , a consumer is able to receive up to $2,000 in financial assistance toward the purchase or lease of a ZEV.

NYSADA has been very pleased with the success of the program and urges all dealer members to make use of this program to your customer's advantage when they are considering the purchase or lease of a ZEV.

To maximize the success of the program we strongly suggest that you review the terms and conditions of the program and confirm that your dealership is signed up to participate and is submitting rebate requests within the 60 day timeframe. To learn more see the Dealer Resources page on the NYSERDA website ...

In reviewing monthly statistical information provided by NYSERDA through their administrator, the Center for Sustainable Energy (CSE), it was noted that applications for rebates are being submitted on only 70% of eligible vehicles. Clearly there are some dealers who have not applied for the rebate which is authorized under the NYSERDA program. This may be attributable to any number of factors, varying from staff turnover to perhaps difficulty assembling the required paperwork . There is a clock which begins ticking the date of the sale or lease, requiring that the completed requisite forms be completed uploaded to the NYSERDA site within 60 days.

Dealers with any questions or concerns about this program or time line are advised to contact either Peter Marthy with NYSADA (518-463-1148 ext. 206) or Marcus Gilmore with the Center for Sustainable Energy (213 805-7266) .
