Rebates for the Nissan LEAF

Nissan Leaf

A $2,500 state rebate is available for qualifying participants who purchase a Nissan LEAF S, SV, or SL model with DC Fast Charge capabilities. They must take delivery, sign an EV Project participant agreement, and complete installation of a Blink 240V networked charge station.

To qualify, LEAF owners must also own their home, intend on residing there a minimum of two years, reside in a valid State of Tennessee zip code, and be willing to share their LEAF charging data as part of the EV Project. Program participants will be provided a free Blink 240V, networked charge station and possibly a credit, up to a certain dollar amount, toward installation.

The State EV Rebate is processed through Nissan dealerships. For more information, you can contact Nissan directly by calling 1 (877) NO GAS EV or (877) 664-2738.

Enrollment in the national EV Project will close January 31, 2013.

  6. Once your free Blink Residential home charger is installed, the State of Tennessee will process the rebate request and provide the rebate to your Nissan dealer. If you are due a check, it will be issued by the dealership after the rebate has been received from the State.
  7. As you use your Blink Charger to fuel your Nissan LEAF, ECOtality will remotely collect data on your charging habits. You're also encouraged to use the Blink Network of Public Charging Stations.

Those who have already enrolled in the EV Project and taken ownership of their Nissan LEAF are still eligible to apply for the rebate retroactively. These LEAF owners should contact their Nissan dealer for more information.
