Green Driver State Incentives in Wisconsin
For those who operate eco-friendly vehicles, Wisconsin offers several green driver incentives including emissions testing exemptions, tax refunds, weight exemptions, biodiesel fuel use incentives, and even special grants, loans, and tax credit programs for businesses such as farms.
However, if you drive certain green vehicles, you're off the hook. The following eco-friendly vehicles are exempt from smog checks:
- Diesel-powered vehicles with a model year 2006 and older.
- Motorcycles and mopeds.
- Electric-powered vehicles.
- Non-motorized vehicles.
Also check our Smog Check Stations widget below if your vehicle isn't subject to exemption.
You must file your refund claim within one year of purchasing the alternative fuel (according to the AFDC) and it must be for at least 100 gallons of alternative fuel.
Reference Wisconsin Statutes 78.75(1m)(a)1 for more details.
To qualify, you must:
- Prove the weight of the idle reduction equipment with written certification.
- Demonstrate that the idle reduction technology is fully functional at all times.
NOTE: If funds are insufficient during any given fiscal year, the DPI will prorate the available funds among eligible school districts,
