Burlington Electric and Freedom Nissan Partner to Offer Rebate on 2017 Leaf Electric Vehicles

Burlington, Vt. - The Burlington Electric Department announced that it is partnering with Freedom Nissan to offer a $10,000 rebate to Burlington Electric customers who purchase a 2017 Nissan Leafe electric vehicle (EV) between July 1 and September 30.

"Coupled with Burlington Electric's $1,200 EV rebate program and a federal tax credit, our partnership with Freedom Nissan offers one more significant incentive for our customers to make the switch from fossil fuel burning cars to electric vehicles," said Burlington Electric General Manager Neale Lunderville.

Burlington Electric has an ongoing rebate incentive program in which their customers can receive a $1,200 rebate on the purchase or lease of a new EV and a $600 rebate on the purchase or rebate of a new plug-in hybrid EV with an electric range of 20 or more miles.

"Mobile sources, primarily motor vehicles, are the largest cause of air pollutants in Vermont, making up 46 percent of the state's greenhouse gas emissions. Burlington Electric’s partnership with Freedom Nissan, allowing customers to purchase a Leaf at $10,000 below MSRP, will help increase the number of zero-emission vehicles on the road, thereby taking a critical step towards reducing our state’s air pollution and dependence on petroleum,” said Abby Bleything, Vermont Clean Cities Coordinator.

Burlington Electric has installed 13 EV charging stations, a total of 24 charging ports, around the city, including in the Marketplace and Cherry Street parking garages and on Main Street near City Hall.
