LINCOLN — The American Public Power Association and Nissan have announced an extension of their popular 2019 Nissan LEAF rebate. From now until Jan. 2, 2020, Lincoln Electric System customers are eligible for a $3,500 rebate when purchasing the all-electric 2019 LEAF standard edition and $2,500 when purchasing the ePlus edition.
In addition to the public power rebate, customers also can get up to $7,500 in federal electric vehicle tax credits. That’s a possible $11,000 off the price of a new 2019 Nissan LEAF.
On average, it costs about half as much to drive an EV, compared to a similar vehicle that runs on conventional gasoline. That lower cost is largely due to both the lower cost of fuel when switching to electric and the lower maintenance costs associated with an electric motor compared to internal-combustion engines. Plus, EVs produce zero direct emissions, which improves air quality, enhances public health, and reduces environmental impact. To learn more about the benefits of EVs, visit Energy.gov.
“We are very pleased Nissan and the American Public Power Association have been able to extend this special offer for LES customers,” said Marc Shkolnick, manager of Energy Services at LES. ”Customer-owned utilities like ours are focused on saving money for our customers in the community, so this initiative aligns very well with public power. LES is pleased to be able to share this opportunity with its customers.”
Customers looking to utilize this rebate for an upcoming vehicle purchase can claim it by visiting LES.com/ev. There they can click the rebate flyer image, print and bring it into their local Nissan dealer along with proof of eligible residency and a current electric bill (or some other proof of being an LES customer).
Offer ends Jan. 2, 2020.
