Discount Electric Car Purchase Program Launches Nov. 1

Boulder County residents can access limited time
discounts for electric vehicles

Boulder County, Colo. - Boulder County and its
municipalities are providing another reason to purchase an electric vehicle. The
program, Benefits Boulder County, is back by popular demand after significant
successes earlier this year. By reducing the price of electric cars while educating
the community, Boulder County is providing a greater incentive for people to
leave the gas pump.

“To date, this program has made
purchasing an electric car easy and affordable,” said Susie Strife,
Sustainability Coordinator for Boulder County. “This round of EV Benefits
Boulder County has more competitive pricing and is offered through Valley
Nissan in Longmont, making it easier for eastern county residents to
participate.”

To take advantage of the reduced
pricing for an electric vehicle, participants can work directly with the
program partner below using the code:

“These types of community-based
programs are expanding EV adoption across the country and play an important
role in lowering air emissions and health risks associated with those
emissions,” said Strife. “Plus, electric vehicles boost local economies because
the $500 or more that people save every year on fuel—even at today’s low gas
prices—tends to be spent locally.”

Program History

Through a competitive solicitation
process, an evaluation committee selected a reputable vendor to provide
sustainability goods and services to Boulder County residents at discounted
prices.

This nationally recognized and
award winning program has facilitated the purchase of more than 1MW of
residential rooftop solar, 350 electric vehicles, and 80 electric bikes across
the Front Range. Building off the success of the 2015 and 2016 programs,
Boulder County is launching this round as a limited time offer until Dec. 31,
2016.
