EV Rental Rebate

Take a drive in an EV for the weekend on us. We are offering a rebate of up to $200 for San Mateo County residents to experience the fun and ease of an EV.

We anticipate our rebate could cover the cost of a 2 to 3-day EV rental, depending on the vehicle. You may choose from any rental car company, but we recommend Turo* for their large inventory of EVs.

Program Eligibility

  • Must be a San Mateo County resident
  • Limited to one rebate per household


  1. Rent an EV through a rental car company of your choice
  2. Take a drive for a few days
  3. Apply for your rebate with required documentation** after your rental has taken place
  4. Once approved, you will receive a rebate check from us in the mail

Note: must be a San Mateo County resident

*Peninsula Clean Energy does not have an affiliation with Turo.
