Step One - Apply as a "Supplier"

By purchasing a clean vehicle, you supplied a service to the state and will need to apply as a "supplier." Find more information in the New Supplier Registration Guide or watch the video below.

Register as a Supplier

Be sure to note your Supplier ID, as this is required in the rebate application.

Rebates will be issued based on the information put in the supplier portal; incorrect information provided during the application submission process or information that is not up to date with the State of Delaware Division of Accounting may delay the payment timeline.
