See Oregon Bulletin, February 2020
The Environmental Quality Commission adopted amendments to the Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program rules to
incorporate 2019 Legislative changes affecting the program and to make other
necessary adjustments to clarify program requirements. These changes include:
- Allowing plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to be eligible
for the Charge Ahead rebate;
- Prorating the payback amount if a rebate
recipient sells or terminates the lease of the electric vehicle before the end
of 24 months;
- Creating a provision that allows for waiver of the payback
amount if the rebate recipient sells or terminates the lease of the electric
vehicle before the end of 24 months;
- Allowing people who purchased vehicles
between Jan. 1, 2018 and Aug. 2, 2018 to have an additional six month
window to apply for the rebate; and
- Making other minor adjustments to ensure
the program continues to operate smoothly.
