Find federal and state laws and incentives for electric vehicles, charging stations, air quality, fuel efficiency, and other transportation-related topics. This tool draws from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory’s (NREL) comprehensive database of laws and incentives.
You can search by keyword, jurisdiction, type of incentive, type of regulation, user type, or a combination thereof.
If you have questions, email U.S. Department of Energy’s Technical Response Service. For additional incentives, search the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Efficiency.
NREL updates state-level information annually after each state’s legislative session ends; necessary updates may be made independent of the legislative session schedule. Relevant federal information is added to or updated in the database after legislation is signed into law or when agencies issue final rules. There are many other incentives that utilities and private organizations offer, including training, consulting, feasibility studies, and technical assistance among others, and not all of these are included in this database due to the significant number of entities now offering these services to existing and potential customers.

Note: This information provides an overview of laws and incentives and should not be your only source of information for making decisions about vehicle purchases, taxes, or other binding agreements. Please refer to the federal and state contacts included to verify these laws and incentives are still applicable and consult your tax advisor.
