PASADENA – ColoradoBoulevard.net:
Pasadena Water and Power (PWP) is excited to announce a new e-bike rebate pilot program, which will launch July 1, 2023.
By News Desk
The California Department of Motor Vehicles defines e-bikes as “a bicycle fully equipped with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of less than 750 watts.” The new pilot rebates will apply to new Class 1, Class 2, and Class 3 e-bikes with a limit of two per PWP residential electric service account. Scooters, mopeds, segways, and e-bike conversion kits will not qualify.
The rebate amounts will range from $500 to $1,000 for e-bikes purchased at retailers within the City of Pasadena. Further details about the program, including how to apply, will be announced online at PWPweb.com in late June.
- $500 for the purchase of a new qualifying electric bicycle from a bike shop located in the City of Pasadena.
- $250 bonus for the purchase of a qualifying new e-cargo bike or adaptive e-bike from a bike shop located in the City of Pasadena.
- Additional $250 bonus is available if the customer is enrolled in PWP’s income-qualified bill assistance program.
The pilot program joins a robust suite of PWP rebates focused on sustainable energy, electrification, and helping customers save on their utility bill. For more information on PWP rebates, including electric vehicle rebates and incentives for energy efficient appliances, visit this link.
