Electrify Your Fleet



The Electrify Your Fleet Program provides Central Coast Community Energy Member Agencies with direct rebates for the completed purchases/leases for eligible light duty, medium duty, and heavy-duty battery electric vehicles.

Member Agencies are the cities and counties that have joined the Central Coast Community Energy Joint Powers Authority and have been approved by the Policy Board of Directors.  

Rebates will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.  

Why Electrify?

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Improve air quality
  • Increase EV use in the Central Coast Community Energy service area
  • Accelerate EV adoption for municipal fleets by incentivizing purchase and installation of EVs
  • Improve driver/occupant comfort

“Central Coast Community Energy’s Member Agency Services team provided Santa Barbara County with $242,000 for electric vehicles and electric vehicle charging infrastructure helping us to accelerate our electrification efforts. These dollars are well spent and significantly help us to reduce both GHG and other vehicle exhaust emissions while at the same time increasing our overall operating efficiency and driver comfort. Truly, this has been a win-win engagement.”

-Skip Grey, Assistant Director of the General Services Department of the County of Santa Barbara

The Climate Mayors EV Purchasing Collaborative was launched in Fall 2018 with the help of the Electrification Coalition to leverage the buying power of fleets to make electrification simple, affordable, and accessible. The Collaborative works with over 210 fleets around the nation to highlight those who are transitioning their fleets to electric.

The goal of the Collaborative is to support fleet electrification efforts by providing free and customized technical support and procurement help, as well as helping fleets identify funding for vehicles and charging stations.

The Electrification Coalition develops and implements a broad set of strategies to facilitate widespread adoption of electric vehicles. These strategies include policy development, advocacy campaigns, consumer education, fleet electrification, cultivation of bipartisan support, community electrification planning, EV supply chain development, and coalition building.

The Local Government Playbook contains recommendations for how counties, cities, and towns can leverage federal investments in electric vehicle infrastructure. It provides a “checklist” of actions and strategies that local governments can enact now and in the future, including best practices, innovative policy approaches, and lessons from previous charging deployments.
