Our rebate provides up to $1,000 or 80% of the purchase price, whichever is less. For example: if your bike is $900, your rebate will be $720. If your e-bike is between $1,250 to $3,000, you will receive the full $1,000. The purchase price of the e-bike cannot exceed $3,000 before sales tax.
The application will open on June 12, 2023 and close until funds are exhausted.
Unfortunately, we only allow for one rebate per household, even if it was bought years ago.
Peninsula Clean Energy considers a household as a single address. If multiple families live a single address, only one application from that address may be submitted. This requirement does not include apartments, condos, or multi-unit dwellings that have a designated unit number.
No, each household is limited to one application (one bike).
Yes, you may purchase a bike from any bike shop. However, only participating bike shops will offer the incentive as a point of sale discount. If you choose to purchase a bike from a non-participating bike shop, you will receive the incentive as a post-sale rebate. Please contact programs@peninsulacleanenergy.
Rebate recipients will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.
