The Government of Yukon expands Good Energy clean transportation incentives

The Government of Yukon is expanding the clean transportation rebates to include commercial medium- and heavy-duty electric vehicles. The government is also adding boats, all-terrain vehicles and other modes of electric transportation.  

 Yukoners can now get up to $2,500 in rebates based on battery size for alternative electric transportation options such as electric boats, motorcycles and all-terrain vehicles. Rebates of up to $10,000 are now available for commercial electric vehicles such as pick-ups and utility vans that meet medium-duty class 2B criteria and above.

The Government of Yukon has also doubled the rebate amount available for Level 2 electric vehicle chargers. Yukoners and Yukon businesses can receive up to $1,500 in rebates when installing Level 2 electric vehicle charging stations at home and at work.

These incentives are additions to the growing suite of clean transportation rebates available under the government’s Our Clean Future climate strategy. 

I am excited to announce that our government is adding new clean transportation incentives for Yukoners. These reflect our commitment to take broad, concrete actions to respond to the climate crisis. As we continue to expand our electricity grid, investing in clean transportation incentives will reduce the Yukon’s greenhouse gas emissions and continue to make electric transportation more affordable to Yukoners.
