    Just went into effect as of today.

    About the DRIVE Program- Rhode Island -DRIVE - Driving Rhode Island to Vehicle Electrification


    "DRIVE is designed to fill a significant gap in the State’s clean energy portfolio and facilitate adoption of EVs by local consumers. Through DRIVE, qualified Rhode Island residents interested in purchasing or leasing a EV will be able to apply for a rebate of up to $2,500, based upon vehicle battery capacity. Modeled closely on existing rebate programs offered in other states, DRIVE offers the potential to increase the total number of EVs on Rhode Island roadways by 20-35%."

    Tesla even has a noted exception for purchasing out of state. Nice.

    3 months into it and 89k out of 200k is already used up. This will be gone by the end of the summer.
