Georgia lawmakers continue to discuss eliminating $5,000 electric-vehicle tax credit.
Plug In America fights for Georgia to keep its $5,000 electric-vehicle incentive, says each EV saves $2,200 a year from being exported.
Electric-vehicle advocates may really start believing the old Charlie Daniels song The Devil Went Down to Georgia after reading that one of that state's former politicians wants to abolish the local EV tax incentive. Former Alpharetta Mayor Chuck Martin says the state should cut its $5,000 perk because the federal government's $7,500 incentive is enough at this point to get folks to buy plug-ins, the Atlanta Business Chronicle says. Martin is pushing for the incentive to be dropped by April 1.
