It's Time for Change in  

Currently, there are no incentives available in your area. However, transportation is changing rapidly and we update this page frequently. Please check back often for the latest information. In the meantime, feel free to edit the letter below to let your legislators know that the time for e-mobility is now.

Dear [Name of Representative]:

My name is [Your Name] and l live in [City, State/Province]. My organization, [Name of Company], is interested in investing in electric vehicle (EV) charging for our [Employees/Customers/Residents), but I recently learned there aren’t any incentives available in my area to help offset the costs of purchasing and installing EVSE equipment.

As you are no doubt aware, the transportation sector is responsible for the largest share of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, contributing to climate change and pollution, which are bad for people’s health and bad for business.

I am proud of where I live. I don’t want to see us fall behind the rest of the country and the world by failing to keep pace with changes that are both necessary and inevitable.

I urge you to consider introducing legislation that would offer incentives such as tax credits, rebates or grants to those of us who are eager to make [City or Region] a cleaner, healthier and more sustainable place to live for every citizen. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to your efforts in this matter.

Very truly yours,

[Your Name]
