Rulemaking

Proposed rulemaking

Rule Coordinator: Rachel Sakata, 503-229-5659

House Bill 2017 (2017) directs DEQ to establish a program to provide rebates to Oregonians who purchase certain types of electric vehicles (including plug-in hybrid electric vehicles) and other qualifying zero-emissions vehicles. There are two elements to the rebate program – conventional rebates for the purchase of a new electric vehicle, and a Charge Ahead rebate that provides rebates to low or moderate income households who purchase a new or used electric vehicle if they also meet other qualifying criteria.  At this time DEQ is developing rules to implement the program by establishing eligibility criteria, rebate amounts, and clarifying design features of the Charge Ahead rebate program.

 

Electrical Vehicle Rebates 2018 Advisory Committee

DEQ is beginning a rulemaking that will define eligibility criteria, rebate amounts, and other design elements of the Electric Vehicle Rebate program. The Electric Vehicle Rebate Rule Advisory Committee is being convened to provide stakeholders with an opportunity to comment on technical and policy issues, as well as the fiscal and economic impact of the proposed rule.
