The California Air Resources Board and electric utilities statewide are striving to meet carbon-neutrality goals.
California electric utilities can be valuable partners by offering information on at-home charging, time-of-use rates, and other key items to use your electric vehicle.
Electric vehicles are about much more than good, clean fun. EV owners get access to the HOV lane, electric vehicle tax credits, and more.
With advances in EV driving range and the expansion of public charging stations throughout California, electric vehicles make more sense than ever.
There are hundreds of thousands of electric vehicles on the streets of California. If you get one, you’ll find yourself in good company.
The reward is available to anyone who purchases or leases an eligible vehicle through a participating retailer. There are no income or location restrictions within California, but the vehicle must be registered in the state of California, and the customer must reside in California.
Note: Vehicles purchased before November 17, 2020 are not eligible for the California Clean Fuel Reward. If you purchased your vehicle prior to that date or you did not purchase at a participating retailer, we encourage you to visit your electric utility or search Additional Incentives as you may still be eligible for rewards.
The California Clean Fuel Reward is a California statewide electric vehicle time-of-sale (or lease) incentive program funded through the California Air Resource Board’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS). The program is administered by Southern California Edison Company on behalf of all participating Electric Distribution Utilities. The California Clean Fuel Reward is available to anyone who resides in California and purchases or leases a new eligible vehicle from a participating retailer. The objective of the program is to help California reach its carbon reduction goals by incentivizing retail customers seeking to purchase or lease a new vehicle to choose an electric vehicle by providing a time-of-sale discount on eligible vehicles.
