To incentivize individuals to drive electric vehicles (EVs), Missouri exempts EVs from emissions inspections requirements. The state doesn’t offer any monetary rebates for the purchase of EVs.
In the US, 90% of the energy consumed in the transportation sector comes from petroleum, which is a finite resource and contributes to heavy carbon dioxide emissions. In fact, the transportation sector is the nation’s leading source of greenhouse gas emissions, contributing 29%.
To change this trend, many states have begun to offer incentives—often in the form of rebates—to encourage drivers to choose electric vehicles. These rebates help make electric vehicles accessible to more people, but specific offers vary by state.
The car insurance comparison and broker app Jerry has compiled a guide to Missouri electric vehicle incentives.
How much can I save with the Missouri electric vehicle incentive?
The Missouri electric vehicle incentive allows drivers of EVs to be exempt from emissions inspection requirements. At this time, there is no monetary rebate for individuals who purchase an electric vehicle.
Through Ameren Missouri’s Charge Ahead Program, nonresidential customers (e.g., landlords, businesses) can receive one of the following:
- 50% rebate for installing electric vehicle charging equipment
- $5,000 for each Level 2 charging port and $20,000 for each Level 3 charging port installed in a multi-residence property
How to get Missouri electric vehicle incentive
At this time, private owners of electric vehicles don’t need to take any action to take advantage of the incentive. EVs will be exempt from emissions testing prior to sale.
Businesses/commercial customers can apply online to the Charge Ahead Program before September 30, 2022 or until funding runs out.
