On Tuesday, the city launched its zero-emission incentive program. Ashland Electric Utility users with an active account can get a $300 rebate towards eligible electric bicycles purchased at a participating city bike shop. Eligible Ashland Electric customers can also get a $1,500 rebate for the registration of a qualifying new or used battery electric vehicle.
The city said the incentive increases access to affordable, zero-emission e-bikes and battery electric vehicles that are normally financially out of reach for many customers.
Ashland Electric and the Bonneville Environmental Foundation will fund the first 50 new e-bikes and 70 new electric vehicle registrations in the utility territory within 12 months.
Participating Ashland Retail Bike Shops:
An information session will be held on December 2 at 1:30 p.m. for interested utility customers via Zoom.
