Used EV incentive led by unlikely backer

New program prompts a question: where traditional support for electrification falls short, can philanthropy help fill the void?

One only has to look at the most recent elections in Alberta and Ontario to recognize that public incentives to promote energy efficiency are unreliable at best.

But in the case of Ontario, where last summer the Conservative government eliminated electric vehicle subsidies soon after it was elected, another potential source of support has emerged: philanthropists.

There’s just one example to start — the recently announced partnership between Plug’n Drive, the M.H. Brigham Foundation and the Clean Air Partnership, which offers a $1,000 rebate to anyone in Ontario who buys a used electric vehicle. But its emergence raises an interesting question: Can philanthropists play an expanded role in advancing Canada’s transition to electric vehicles?
