Electric vehicles (EVs) are ready today. And in the nick of time. Experts now say that widespread adoption of electric cars is necessary to solve the problem of climate change. Through Drive Green with Mass Energy (MA) and Drive Green with People's Power & Light (RI), you can purchase or lease an EV at a discounted price.
We've organized these EV buying group programs to accelerate the adoption of EVs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Drive Green is free to use and allows anyone to purchase or lease an EV or plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) at a pre-negotiated discounted price at one of our participating dealers for the program duration of November 2nd through February 28. And on top of that, EVs are cheaper to drive
per mile than gasoline and require less maintenance. They're a win for consumers and the environment, and the Drive Green discounts make them even more affordable.
We are basing this program on the good work of others in Colorado and Utah. It's a natural extension of the “buyers’ group” models we have operated for energy consumers since 1982. On top of the deep discounts available through Drive Green, the cars qualify for federal tax credits that reduce your tax liability by up to $7500 and state rebates (MA here, RI here - make sure to read up on restrictions) of up to $2500. Economically, EVs make sense today.
Here’s how to participate:
- Vist the Drive Green website (MA here, RI here) and do your research.
- Sign up for the program by filling out a simple form (MA, RI) on our website.
- One or more of our participating dealers (depending on your vehicle preferences) will call you to answer your questions and schedule a test-drive.
- Purchase or lease an electric vehicle at the pre-negotiated discount price before the deal’s expiration date. All purchases or leases must be made by February 28, 2017 to receive a Drive Green discount.
