The Oregon Clean Vehicle Rebate Program is now issuing Standard Rebate checks to Phase 1 applicants that have submitted an approved Phase 2 application. We are currently processing Standard Rebate applications submitted between Jan. 1, 2018 and Oct. 31, 2018. We will continue to expedite processing the remaining 2018 Standard Rebate applications.
DEQ has also established agreements with interested dealerships to provide “cash on the hood” rebates for anyone purchasing or leasing a new electric vehicle. Cash on the hood means the dealer will subtract the electric vehicle rebate from the price of the vehicle at the time of purchase. The dealer submits for the rebate instead of having the buyer wait to receive the rebate.
We are in the process of selecting a contractor to manage the application process for both Standard and Charge Ahead Rebates. We anticipate issuing checks for 2018 Charge Ahead applications later in 2019.
