State of CT Offering Rebates on Electric Bikes to Improve Environment
The wind in your hair, the open road and the roar of the engine, I take that last part back, no roar.
CT residents are about to save big on e-bike purchases throughout the state.
According to Metro News 24/7:
"A new state program allows CT residents to receive a large cash rebate when purchasing an e-bike. Starting tomorrow (6/28/23), people who buy e-bikes in-person, from state retailers can receive a rebate of between 500 and 1500 dollars. The rebate program was created last year as part of the Connecticut Clean Air Act passed by the State Legislature."
The concept sounds great, more e-bikes should lead to a reduction in gas guzzling motor vehicles spraying exhaust into the skies, right? Sure, it could work in certain cities but if you plan on driving from New Milford to Ridgefield, the e-bike may not be for you.
We spoke about this on the Tuesday edition (6/27/23) of the I-95 Morning Show, listen below.

When we were young a motorcycle was the dream, you either wanted a Harley or what we called a "crotch rocket." You would not be caught dead on a moped or anything resembling one but the world has come a long way. Not only can you ride on an electric scooter but you can do it while wearing crocs and white socks pulled up to your knees.
