Going electric is good for you
and the planet.
Available May 1, 2019, MBCP is offering EV incentives to all MBCP customers – with additional incentives for income-qualified residents, public agencies, non-profits and schools.
Currently, EVs make up only 1% of all vehicles in the Monterey Bay Region. In order to meet statewide goals and continue shaping the Central Coast as an innovative leader in sustainability, our region’s EV ownership must grow to 15% by 2030.
