Cash for Clunkers is back! For upgrading a 10+year old car. At least in Vermont. According to an article in VTDigger, Vermont has a "Replace your Ride" program that gives you $3000 for old fossil fuel vehicles. There are other state and utility incentives for low to middle income earners too. If you live in VT or have friends there, let them know. From the site:
- 25% off the sale price of a used high-efficiency car, up to $5,000, through MileageSmart.
- State incentives, which can reduce the purchase price of an electric vehicle by as much as $4,000 for individuals who make 50,000 or less, and up to $2,500 for those who make between $50,000 and $100,000.
- Income-based incentives offered by electric utilities. Green Mountain Power, for example, offers up to $2,500 to those who make the switch, and some programs offer a free charger.
