California Clean Fuel Reward Program

Thanks to the The California Air Resources Board and California electric utility providers, there are more reasons than ever to choose an EV as your next vehicle in Valencia! The California Clean Fuel Reward awards a reward of up to $1,500 to drivers who purchase an eligible new Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicle from a participating retailer.

How Do I Receive the California Clean Fuel Reward?

Funded by utilities participating in the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), the California Clean Fuel Reward is available to all California residents regardless of their electricity provider. It’s simple: your retailer will include the reward in the sales transaction when you purchase your new BEV or PHEV vehicle, and you’ll be asked to sign the Program Customer Agreement.

  • You must drive either a Battery Electric (BEV) or Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) vehicle.
  • Your vehicle must have a battery capacity of 5 kWh or greater.
  • The California Clean Fuel Reward is offered on a sliding scale up to $1,500.
