Affordable Used Electric Cars

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) has partnered with Peninsula Family Service (PFS) to offer a $4,000 incentive to income-qualifying San Mateo County residents who purchase a used plug-in hybrid electric vehicle through the DriveForward Electric Program.

Peninsula Family Service’s DriveForward Program provides affordable loans to help participants purchase reliable used vehicles and strengthen their personal and financial stability.

The enhanced DriveForward Electric Program in partnership with Peninsula Clean Energy makes it more affordable for participants to purchase a clean plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles save owners money on fueling and maintenance costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It’s a win-win!

Hear from one of our program participants, Ana, who is now a proud new owner of a 2016 Chevy Volt!
