Now’s the perfect time to go electric! From October 1st through December 31st 2019, San Mateo County residents can get discounts of up to $7,000 off the purchase of a new electric car from participating dealerships and Peninsula Clean Energy. There are great deals on leases too. The program combines guaranteed discounts from dealerships with incentives from Peninsula Clean Energy of $1,000 for all-electric cars or $700 for plug-in hybrids. The savings really add up when combined with manufacturer discounts and up to $10,800 in federal, state, and local incentives.
