Is an electric vehicle in your future? 
Did you know the cost to operate an electric vehicle (EV) is less than half of the cost of a normal gas-powered car? Each year, automakers offer more EV models — many of which surpass 150 miles on a single charge — and studies show most U.S. consumers understand the cost and environmental benefits of this transportation technology.
Making low-emission driving more attractive and accessible goes hand-in-hand with our 100% renewable energy vision for Iowa. So we’re offering MidAmerican Energy customers in Iowa a $500 rebate when you purchase a qualifying low-emissions EVs. New battery electric vehicles and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, like a Chevy Bolt or Nissan® LEAF, purchased or leased after January 1, 2020 are eligible for a rebate. Standard hybrid vehicles, like a Toyota Prius, do not qualify. Review additional qualifications below.  

In Iowa, the positive impact of driving an EV is amplified because you’re charging your vehicle with electricity generated from the wind. In 2017 and 2018, over 50% of the electricity provided to Iowa customers was from renewable sources. That number is expected to increase each year until we reach our 100% renewable energy vision.
