Despite America’s obsession with gadgets, electricity sales have been flatlining. So, what’s a utility company to do? Sonoma Clean Power in California has hit upon one answer: get people to buy more EVs, with hefty discounts and a free home EV charger, to boot — and an extra break for low income eligible buyers, too.
As a not-for-profit company with a clean energy mission, SCP has a slightly different perspective on the bottom line than a private utility, but if Sonoma can make the rebate work that could be good news — eventually — for prospective EV buyers everywhere.
