The Ventura County Regional Energy Alliance, Community Environmental Council (CEC), the Central Coast Clean Cities Coalition, and the Air Pollution Control Districts of Ventura, Santa Barbara, and San Luis Obispo Counties are launching Electric Drive 805. The new coalition of government agencies and non-profits is focused on helping more drivers understand the financial benefits of electric vehicles and access incentives. With State of California and utility rebates, drivers can purchase or lease a new electric vehicle for less than a similar-sized vehicle that uses gasoline or diesel. Used electric vehicles can also be purchased for less than $5,000 with grants from the state’s Clean Vehicle Assistance Program and a $1,000 Clean Fuel Rewards rebate from SCE.
