As part of its Alternative Fuel Rebate Program, the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection has been dishing out $3,500 in rebates to people who buy electric vehicles or plug-in hybrids with large batteries.

Now, with the agency expecting to reach its limit of 500 rebates in late February, the program is being extended, albeit with a lesser amount.

The DEP will offer $3,000 rebates to people who buy large-battery electric cars, such as the Nissan Leaf, Ford Focus and Chevy Volt. Rebates of $1,000 will be offered for plug-in hybrids and electric cars with smaller batteries, such as the Toyota Prius plug-in and Ford C-Max Energi.
