Frequently Asked Questions

  • An EV uses electricity stored in a battery to move the wheels. All the EVs referenced on our website are plug-in.
  • We don't currently offer an EV-specific electric rate. However, depending on the state in which you live, we may offer a "whole house" time-of-use rate, which can help lower your electric bill. Please contact Customer Service to learn more.
  • Yes.There is a federal tax credit of up to $7,500 available for up to 200,000 new EVs produced by a single manufacturer. The tax credit steps down to half ($3,750) after the second quarter once the limit has been met and then is reduced to half again for the next two quarters. Once this time has passed, the tax credit goes away for that manufacturer. Check the IRS website for the status of each vehicle manufacturer's remaining incentives.
