Arizona Electric Vehicle Incentives

In Arizona, drivers who purchase eligible electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicles can save up to $7,500 with the federal and state incentive programs.
We need green vehicles more than ever. Today, 90% of the USA’s transportation energy consumption comes from petroleum—and transportation is the leading cause of greenhouse gases nationwide.
To help more people choose electric and hybrid vehicles, many states offer incentives. These are rebates, tax credits, or discounts that help reduce the cost of owning and maintaining an electric vehicle.
There are state-specific incentives as well as federal rewards. To help you understand, the car insurance comparison and broker app Jerry has compiled a guide to Arizona electric vehicle incentives.

How much can I save with the Arizona electric vehicle incentive?

Unfortunately, Arizona does not offer a vehicle-related incentive—although there is a federal tax credit available up to $7,500 depending on the car’s battery capacity.
Arizona does offer a generous rebate via Tucson Electric Power (TEP) for residential customers who install a charging station, or EVSE. Here’s what it entails:
  • Up to 75% rebate for the installation cost—maximum $500 for a qualified two-way communicating EVSE and $250 for a one-way non-communicating EV charger
  • 5% decrease in applicable charges for your EV when charging during off-peak hours
Commercial customers can get additional rebates, like $1,500 for EV port installation from the Salt River Project or up to $24,000 per port from Tucson Electric Power (TEP).

How to get the Arizona electric vehicle incentive

To be eligible for the discounted electricity rate, you must be a residential customer with TEP. To access the EVSE credit, you must install an eligible charger and charge your EV during off-peak hours.
Learn more about TEP’s incentive programs through the National Conference of State Legislatures.

"When we added a new car to our family, we were shocked at how high our current insurer was going to hike our rates. We used Jerry for some comparison shopping and are now saving around $1000 a year. Thank you, Jerry!" —Darius P.
