Expansion of the Electric Bike and Electric Moped Rebate Program [SB 3021]

Testify in support of SB 3021

Senate Bill 3021, which expands and increases rebates for the electric bike and electric moped rebate program, has a hearing on April 2nd in the House Committee on Finance. Please submit testimony by Monday, April 1st in support of this important bill. 

What does this bill do? The goal of this measure is to create a more robust and expanded electric mobility rebate program under the Hawai‘i Department of Transportation. This would reduce the cost of living and cost of transportation for local residents by providing rebates for the purchase of electric bicycles, electric mopeds, and other modes of electric mobility options that are cheaper and more widely accessible than electric cars.

Why does this bill matter? Rapid decarbonization of our transportation sector will require more than just switching to electric cars. Expanded access to electric mobility options like e-bikes and electric mopeds is critical to an equitable and clean transportation future.
