RFP Overview

Peninsula Clean Energy (PCE) programs include advancing the adoption of electric vehicles and transitioning building fossil fuel uses to low-carbon electricity. With this request for proposals (RFP), PCE is seeking qualified San Mateo County dealerships selling or leasing new battery electric vehicles (EVs) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEVs) to partner with their respective original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and submit proposals for PCE’s 2019 time-limited New EV Dealer Incentive Program.

Dealers must offer discounts to all residents throughout the duration of the program. PCE will support dealers with a direct incentive of $250 per vehicle and allocation of significant marketing funds. PCE will also provide a $1,200 or $700 incentive to each resident that purchases or leases a EV or PHEV, respectively, from one of the selected dealers.
