SALT LAKE CITY — In a continuing effort to support environmentally friendly transportation, Rocky Mountain Power customers in Utah are now eligible for a $10,000 discount off the purchase of a 2017 Nissan LEAF.

Electric vehicles like a LEAF can be cheaper to operate than gas-powered cars and eliminate tail pipe emissions, oil changes and trips to the gas station.

“We want to help customers so they don’t have to choose between their pocketbook and helping improve air quality,” said Cindy A. Crane, Rocky Mountain Power President and CEO. “This joint venture is a significant way to make electric vehicles more affordable.”

All Rocky Mountain Power customers and employees in Utah qualify for the Nissan discount, which expires June 30. Those who take advantage of the offer may also qualify for a federal tax credit of $7,500. Nissan also offers 24 months of complimentary public charging at participating outlets in the Salt Lake City area.

The offer from Nissan is available at any of the eight Utah dealerships – Logan, Murray, North Salt Lake, Orem, Riverdale, Saint George, Salt Lake City or South Jordan.

“Nissan North America is partnering with Rocky Mountain Power to accelerate clean transportation alternatives in Utah,” said Valerie Kornahrens, Nissan USA EV Business Development Manager. “This is a great way to save money and help the environment.”

June’s discount is one of many ways Rocky Mountain Power is helping customers take advantage of the healthy, easy and energy-efficient benefits of electric vehicles.

Additional programs include the WestSmart EV Project, which is developing electric highway corridors in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, and the Sustainable Transportation and Energy Plan (STEP), which offers business incentives for EV charging stations and grant-based projects.

Some significant facts about EVs and air quality:

  • The Utah Department of Air Quality has determined vehicle emissions cause 48 percent of the pollution in the Wasatch Front.
  • Transportation is now the largest source of climate pollution in the U.S. according to the U.S. Energy and Information Administration.
  • Utah has the fastest EV growth in the nation according to the EV charging station company Chargepoint.
  • The Alliance of Auto Manufacturers lists Utah as one of the top 10 states for EV market share.
