Residents in Ontario can participate in the government's electric vehicle incentive program, which provides financial incentives to purchase new battery operated and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs).  Rebates are also available to install charging systems at individual homes. Green licence plates allow EVs to drive in traffic lanes reserved for buses and cars carrying two or more passengers.
