Pennsylvanians offered hybrid vehicle
Pennsylvania Governor Edward G. Rendell
reminded car buyers or those who
have purchased an eligible vehicle
in the past six months that $500
rebates are available to make fuel-efficient
electric hybrid vehicles more affordable.
The Governor said Pennsylvania has
made more than $1 million available
to continue its popular rebate program,
which helps drivers conserve fuel,
save money, and reduce the state’s
dependence on imported oil.
Rebates will be provided only for
purchasing the cleanest and most
fuel-efficient hybrid vehicles. In
order to qualify, the total city
and highway miles per gallon ratings
as measured by the United States
Environmental Protection Agency must
meet or exceed 55 mpg. The hybrid
vehicle must also have a carbon footprint
of less than 7.0 tons per year of
carbon dioxide as accounted by www.fueleconomy.gov.
The Department of Environmental Protection
maintains a list of eligible vehicles
that is updated monthly at
keyword Hybrid Vehicle Rebates.
