As part of the effort to accelerate clean transportation alternatives, Sustainable Westchester, and EarthKind Energy are coordinating with Cornell’s Campus Sustainability Office to offer Cornell University employees a special rebate on the purchase of a new 2017 Nissan LEAF electric vehicle!

Cornell University Employees can now save:
$10,000 OFF MSRP

on a NEW Nissan LEAF!

To receive a $10,000 rebate (off MSRP):

Is a Nissan Leaf right for you? Here’s a helpful evaluation tool http://content.sierraclub.org/evguide/pick-a-plugin. Please consider that employees should NOT count on the ability to charge EVs on campus (you may live close enough that you won’t need to!), and become familiar with sustainable campus commuting options https://ipp.cornell.edu/content/getting-around and campus charging stations https://ipp.cornell.edu/content/electric-and-green-vehicle-parking.
