In Georgia, drivers who purchase a new, eligible electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle and the appropriate charging equipment can earn a $250 rebate via the state’s incentive program.
In the US, 90% of the energy consumed from transportation comes from petroleum, a resource that is rapidly depleting. This means that the nation’s transportation sector is the leading source of greenhouse gas emissions (29%).
To curb this dependence on a resource that will one day no longer be available, and that is contributing to great environmental harm, many states are offering incentives, like rebates or tax credits, to encourage drivers to choose electric vehicles and to help make them more accessible.
The offers available and the individual incentive programs vary depending on the state, so the car insurance comparison and broker app Jerry has compiled a guide to all of the nation’s incentive programs, including Georgia.
