With less overall maintenance, less emissions, and more convenience when it comes to fueling your vehicle, electric vehicles are the right choice for many families. Rebates are available for the purchase of a new or used EV and ENERGY STAR-certified Level 2 chargers. Why should you consider an EV for your next car purchase?

Cheaper to operate
Charging an EV is cheaper than filling up a gasoline- or diesel-powered car, especially with PIE&G’s competitive rates. EVs also require less maintenance (no more oil changes!).

Environmentally-friendly
EVs have no exhaust coming from a tailpipe. And with PIE&G’s increasing carbon-free and renewable energy portfolios, charging an EV is cleaner than ever!

No more gas stations
Why stand outside in the elements at a gas station when you can just plug in your EV at home?

Performance
Electric motors are quieter, smoother, and zippier than gasoline-powered engines.
