The electricity that Snohomish County PUD delivers to vehicles in Snohomish County and Camano Island is already nearly carbon-free. Now, thanks to a new offer, it can also be cost-free for select customers.
Starting today, Feb. 24, the PUD is offering a $400 account credit for customers to charge a newly purchased or leased plug-in or plug-in electric/hybrid vehicle. To be eligible, owners must be registered with the Department of Licensing at a residence receiving electric service from the PUD and have purchased or leased their vehicle after Jan. 1, 2021.
"Offering our customers a chance to charge their new EVs free provides another incentive to switch from a vehicle powered by an internal combustion engine to a clean electric vehicle," said the PUD's Shelley Pattison. "It also serves as a reminder that charging an EV can be done conveniently and economically at home."
Customers who apply will see the credit applied to their PUD account as a nonrefundable credit. The incentive is intended to offset the cost of charging an electric vehicle at a customer's home.
To apply, customers can complete the application available at http://www.snopud.com/charging. Applications must include a copy of the auto sales or lease contract and a DOL vehicle registration, and be emailed to [email protected] within 90 days of lease or purchase.
The PUD also offers customers up to a $500 reward for the purchase and installation of qualifying Level 2 Energy Star EV chargers in their homes. For more, go to http://www.marketplace.snopud.com.
Electric vehicles charged in the PUD's service area run on some of the cleanest power in the nation. Most of the PUD's energy is generated by renewable hydropower, and over the past five years, more than 90% of the PUD's fuel mix has come from clean resources such as hydropower, wind and solar.
