Purchasing an Electric Vehicle in 2024

Making the switch to an EV in 2024?

Here’s what you need to know about the new tax incentive rules.



After confirming the sale is eligible for a $7,500 tax credit, the dealer credits you the money and then the dealer is reimbursed by the government. Effectively, the tax credit is being handled by the dealership.


You need to attest that you are under the income cap. It’s based on your modified AGI (adjusted gross income), typically lin 11 on your 1040 form.

  • $300,000 for married couples filing jointly
  • $225,000 for head of households
  • $150,000 for all other filers


New This Year: You get the full credit, regardless of your tax liability.


New This Year: Full EV and plug-in hybrids can qualify for the credit. To qualify, the EV must:

  • Meet a specific battery size
  • Specific vehicle weight
  • Assembled in North America
  • Sticker price $55,000 or less for cars
  • Sticker price $80,000 or less for SUVs and trucks


The batteries in vehicles matter because the material that go into the batteries need to meet sourcing requirements. Half of the credit focuses on the materials and the other half focuses on where the parts of the battery are manufactured.

We get it, it’s confusing! Check out the resources below to help you purchase your EV or plug-in hybrid. Then grab a free quote for your EV charger installation.

The IRS website has the Clean Vehicle Tax Rebates Page

Fueleconomy.gov has a list of qualifying vehicles.

Home Sustainability To-Do List


Are you a resolution maker? Yay, or nay, 2024 is a great year to get serious about reducing your home’s pollution. We’ve narrowed our New Year resolutions to a 5-step to-do list to downsize our homes’ carbon footprint–what’s on your list?

🔲 1. Have a Home Energy Audit:

Discover areas that need upgrading, insulation, or repair to reduce energy consumption and environmental impact. Energy.gov has great resources on how to find an auditor in your area and who to contact.

🔲 2. Replace the Old Furnace with a Heat Pump:

Let’s get real: do you know how old your furnace is? If it’s time to replace it, upgrading to a heat pump will improve heating efficiency, reduce energy bills, increase home air quality, and eliminate the need to burn gas in your home.

🔲 3. Upgrade to LED Bulbs:

LED bulbs are energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan than traditional incandescent bulbs. Making this switch not only saves energy but also reduces the frequency of bulb replacements. This is the cheapest, easiest, no-excuse improvement!

🔲 4. Replace my Gas Guzzler with an EV + EV Home Charger:

Electric Vehicles are more affordable and eco-friendly than ever. Oh, and the savings increase when you charge your EV with solar power and take advantage of tax credits and rebates to make the switch. Our team is happy to help you find the best incentives and hardware to bring the benefits of an EV upgrade to your home.

🔲 5. Add Solar to My Home:

Ahhh, the sun! It’s a plentiful renewable energy source. Adding solar lowers your electrical bill, increases your home’s value, and gives you independence from the grid. Oh yeah, don’t forget about the tax incentives, too!

Let us be your accountability buddy with your 2024 goals. Call us at 303.443.0115, and we’ll work together to make this a year of successful home sustainability improvements!
