On the Road: Over 1,000 Electric Vehicles in Fremont

More and more Fremont residents are hitting the road driving electric vehicles. There are now over 1,000 electric vehicles (EV) in the community and almost 30 percent of all electric vehicles in Alameda County are in Fremont.

In addition to the many environmental benefits of driving an electric vehicle such as reducing carbon emissions, there is a monetary incentive. The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP), whose goal is to promote the production and use of zero-emission vehicles, offers up to $2,500 in electric vehicle rebates. Rebates are given on a first come, first serve basis. Currently, 80 percent of fiscal year 2013-2014 funding for CVRP has been issued and reserved.
