Ohio's New EV/PHEV and Hybrid Registration Fees

The countdown is on. Renew now!

Ohio HB62 (transportation budget) including the $200 EV/PHEV Fee and $100 Hybrid Fee passed.

Thank you to everyone who made calls, wrote emails, or sent a message through our letter campaign on the Action Network.

 Just some clarity on the dates involving HB 62 - The date for the EV registration fee is January 1, 2020. The budget bill itself goes into effect July 1, 2019 but that’s for funding for road and bridge maintenance. 

We are recommending that if you can renew on December 31st, 2019 or before that you do so.
