AMP Launches New Electric Vehicle Rebates, Online Tools

Alameda Municipal Power (AMP) has launched new rebates and a suite of online tools to encourage electric vehicle (EV) ownership. The new incentives are part of an overall initiative to make driving EVs a more viable choice for Alamedans and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

With AMP’s new rebates, residents can earn up to $1,000 back on the purchase of an all-electric used EV. If they choose a used, plug-in hybrid EV, they can get a rebate of up to $500. Income-qualified customers who are enrolled in AMP’s Energy Assistance Program will qualify for an additional $500 for each of these rebates.

AMP is also offering rebates to help lower the purchase price of an electric forklift. Business customers who buy a new class-1 or class-2 electric forklift are now eligible for a rebate up to $2,000.

In addition to the new rebates, AMP has launched new website tools to provide Alamedans with information on choosing, charging and purchasing electric vehicles. AMP’s new online calculator helps Alamedans learn how much they can save by switching from a gas vehicle to an EV. Plus, AMP’s website now offers a live EV model search to help users find the right car based on price and range per charge.

“AMP is excited to offer these new EV rebates and online tools with the goal of lowering carbon emissions,” AMP General Manager Nicolas Procos said. “Now that AMP provides a 100% clean energy mix, our customers can be confident they are charging their vehicles with clean power.”

AMP funds the rebates through low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS) funds. The state’s LCFS program aims to lower greenhouse gas emissions and promote clean fuels and electric vehicles. Visit for more information on AMP’s electric vehicle rebates and programs.
