Pennsylvania is embracing electric vehicles (EVs) thanks to the Inflation Reduction Act by the Biden-Harris administration. Residents can benefit from a $7,500 rebate upon purchasing a new EV.

EV Popularity and Affordability

Lawmakers and environmental advocates in Pennsylvania are promoting the benefits, popularity, and affordability of EVs. Over 64,000 residents already own EVs in the state, with support from President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act.

Biden’s clean energy Plan Impact

President Biden’s clean energy plan has attracted $188 billion in private investments nationwide for electric vehicles and battery production, creating 195,000 jobs. EVs are now more affordable, thanks to the $7,500 rebate under the Inflation Reduction Act.

Cost Savings and Environmental Benefits

EV owners in Pennsylvania can save up to $27,000 in the first 10 years on fuel and maintenance costs compared to gas-powered vehicles. With 39 EV models priced below $48,000 and 15 models under $35,000, EV ownership is becoming more accessible.

Infrastructure Development

Pennsylvania is set to receive $171.5 million from the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure (NEVI) Formula Program to install EV charging stations. The state plans to have charging stations at every service plaza on the Pennsylvania Turnpike by 2027.

Environmental Impact

EVs contribute to a cleaner environment in Pennsylvania by reducing tailpipe emissions. State representatives like Justin Flemming emphasize the importance of clean cars for lower costs and a healthier state.
