Denver officials have granted vouchers defraying the costs of more than 5,060 e-bikes, and they’re offering the latest batch Tuesday starting at 11 a.m.
Launched in 2022, this program gives the city’s residents a break when purchasing e-bikes, or electric bicycles, which have motors that run on rechargeable batteries and give riders a boost. The bikes roll at speeds up to 28 miles per hour, city officials say.
Every other month, a limited number of e-bike rebate vouchers are available. These give an upfront discount on the sales prices of e-bikes at participating bike shops. A standard rebate defrays the cost of a new e-bike by $300 ($500 for a cargo version of an e-bike).
Denver residents can apply through an online portal – denverclimaterebates.com – which entails registering with proof of residency and receiving an emailed verification code.
Tentative future dates for offering vouchers are May 30, July 25, September 26, and November 28.
