Whether you already own an electric vehicle or are considering buying one, OUC has resources to help you make a decision that's right for you

Electric Vehicle purchase or lease ($200)
If you are considering purchasing or leasing an electric vehicle (EV) or recently added one to your garage, OUC has an incentive for you. We are offering a $200 rebate to customers who purchase or lease a plug-in electric vehicle.  A rebate application must be submitted within six months of your EV purchase/lease date along with the proof of purchase.  The OUC customer and/or authorized person’s name must be on the proof of purchase.

There are two basic types of plug-in electric vehicles:

  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV)
    A Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle is similar to conventional hybrids, but it has a larger battery that can be plugged into an electric outlet. PHEVs are usually designed with an electric-only range of 10 to 40 miles, blended with a gasoline engine to achieve higher speeds and loads. After the electric-only range is exceeded, the vehicle continues to operate as a hybrid vehicle using a gasoline engine or generator.
  • All-Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV)
    A typical All-Battery Electric Vehicle is powered entirely by electricity from the utility grid. Battery Electric Vehicles currently have a range of 80 to 120 miles or more.

  • Fuel/Cost Savings: Because EVs use electricity for all or part of their power, they are cheaper to run. With a pure battery EV, you can save up to 75 percent per year on fuel versus a gas-powered car.
  • Performance & Maintenance: Battery electric vehicles also benefit from not having a transmission or combustion engine, eliminating oil changes, fuel filters, emissions testing and other costly maintenance.
  • Better for the Environment: About one-third of the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions come from transportation — and 60 percent of that is from personal vehicle use. EVs significantly reduce carbon emissions.
  • Tax Rebate: The IRS allows a tax credit (of between $2,500 and $7,500) for qualified battery-electric vehicles, depending on the vehicle type.

Before you purchase an EV, contact OUC. If you plan to install a Level 1, Level 2 or DC fast charger, it is especially important to contact OUC. We’ll ensure that your current electric service is capable of handling the additional energy demand of an EV charger. We can provide you with access to certified electrical contractors who can install the charging station for you and answer questions you might have regarding how EV charging may impact your electric bill.

Be sure to visit www.goelectricdrive.org, a one-stop-shop for consumers looking to learn more about purchasing and operating an electric drive vehicle. Here you will find a model showroom and learn more about incentives and charging options. Also, if you have questions about EV and home chargers, please contact our Renewables Department via email: green@ouc.com.
