Reduce emissions and lower your transportation costs with 2017 Nissan Leaf
Green Mountain Power (GMP) customers who bring their energy statements and a special code to Freedom Nissan in South Burlington now through September 30 will get $10,000 off the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of a 2017 Nissan Leaf. The newly dubbed “Leaf Power Program” is the newest in GMP’s many programs encouraging Vermonters to go green and reduce costs.
“At GMP, we are committed to helping our customers find ways to use clean sources of energy and to save money, as we partner on a new energy future,” said Mary Powell, GMP’s President and CEO. “The Leaf, a fully electric car, allows the owner to never have to rely on gasoline or get oil changes again. And with the growing number of charging stations for electric vehicles across the state, Vermont is ready to go electric.”
Customers who take advantage of the rebate will also receive up to a $7,500 tax credit when filing their 2017 taxes making the 2017 Leaf, which start at approximately $30,000 as low as $12,500. Green Mountain Power customers who wish to take advantage of the rebate should bring a copy of their GMP monthly energy statement to the dealership and give the Fleetail Certification Code of “B66059” in order to get the $10,000 off the MSRP.
“This rebate and the tax credit combined will make electric vehicles financially viable for more Vermonters. Additionally, some employers like GMP will give further incentives to employees who purchase electric vehicles making them even more affordable,” Powell added.
The Nissan Leaf offers a battery with a range of up to 107 miles, giving most Vermonters plenty of time between charges. Nissan also warrantees the car for the first eight years or 100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
“Mobile sources, primarily motor vehicles, are the largest source of air pollutants in Vermont, making up 46 percent of the state’s greenhouse gas emissions,” said Abby Bleything, Vermont Clean Cities coordinator. “GMP’s Leaf Power program will help increase the number of zero-emission vehicles on the road, thereby taking a critical step towards reducing our state’s air pollution and dependence on petroleum.”
