Alternative Fuel Rebates for Consumers

The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate program reopens at 8:00 AM on March 1, 2020.

Rebates are offered to Pennsylvania residents only. (Companies, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies are invited to apply for Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants.)

Rebates are offered on a first-come, first-served basis as long as funding is available. Rebates are subject to the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Guidelines in effect at time of application, not date of vehicle purchase.

All applicants should read the Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Guidelines for important details on eligibility and rebate amounts.

You must submit your rebate application no later than 6 months from the date of vehicle purchase.

To apply, use the eGrants electronic application submission process. Please be sure to select Alternative Fuel Vehicle Rebate Program in the application system.
