Vermont has only one representative in the U.S. House. His name is Peter Welch.
Luck for us, Welch is an electric vehicle supporter. Recently, Welch laid out details of his "The Electric Vehicle Act," in which he calls upon the U.S. government to increase the electric vehicle credit from $7,500 to $10,000 and to make it a point-of-sale rebate, rather than a tax credit.
This is certainly not the first time there has been legislation introduced calling for upping the electric vehicle incentive or switching it to point-of-sale and it likely won't be the last time we hear of this.
Our hope is that with more and more backers of such a change coming forward with legislation that eventually the switch will be made.
We're not so sure that the incentive needs to be increased, but the switch from a credit to a point-of-sale rebate would likely be welcomed by us all.
