A good, state program to encourage use of EV's runs out of money:
You can look at this two ways: One, the cars should lease or sell without govt intervention; or, this is a worthy state program and money should be found.
Our experience has been a lot of these programs are not well publicized, many car dealers don't understand them or communicate the advantages to their customers and, hence, does not have a major impact on sales. Yet, given the advantages EV's provide to communities--cutting air pollution and air-borne health risks--there should be an investment made in their growth.
The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources has suspended a year-old program that provided cash incentives for locals who bought electric cars.
