E-bikes (electric bicycles) are currently increasing in popularity. This may be in no small part due to around two dozen states across the country providing incentive programs that end up decreasing out-of-pocket costs, especially for individuals falling under lower income brackets.
E-bikes are emerging as a viable green and environmentally-friendly mode of transportation. Below, Geneverse goes over e-bikes, e-bike incentive programs, as well as a few ways our portable generators can help improve your e-bike riding experience.
Benefits of E-Bikes
Electric bicycles provide a wide variety of benefits that help the end user, which include traveling longer distances in a shorter amount of time without having to exert much energy. E-bikes typically have a motor and a battery, many providing assisted pedaling. Despite all of this assistance, riding an e-bike can still provide an excellent workout.
Perhaps in an obvious sense, e-bikes are also considered green energy. With more and more people utilizing e-bikes to get around towns and cities, this will help reduce our carbon footprint and drive down fossil fuel consumption.
E-bikes are also an economical choice, especially when compared to motorcycles and automobiles. According to REI, the average price of an e-bike is anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000.
E-Bike Incentive Programs
Many cities across the United States (including California, Colorado, Oregon, and Connecticut) offer incentive programs that lower the cost for e-bike purchasers.
Savings come in the form of cash vouchers or tax rebates, which can often bring down the overall cost by hundreds of dollars. Incentive programs are often run by local government organizations and even power companies.
E-bike riders are taking advantage of programs that offer flat rebates or a tax credit, including larger rebates for individuals who fall under lower income thresholds.
People from all walks of life are picking up e-bikes, and many can qualify for savings in applicable areas across the country. Electric bicycles are commonly used by students, however, individuals aged 50 and over are among the leading age groups using e-bikes, according to sources such as Discerning Cyclist.
