North Carolina Electric Vehicle Special License Plate

Help us get a new North Carolina special license plate to increase awareness and support of electric vehicles! For the license plate to be considered by the DMV and General Assembly, we need 500 paid in advance applications by February 1, 2020.

If you’re interested, here are the steps to follow:

  • If you would just like the standard special plate, it will be $10. If you would like a personalized message, please add $30 for a total fee of $40. These are annual fees for the plate. (If you would like a personalized message on your plate, you can check availability at this website – )
  • Advanced Energy has volunteered to collect the applications and fees and submit them to the DMV. Please make a check payable to Advanced Energy for the total fee amount. Send check to Advanced Energy Attn: Plug-in NC, 909 Capability Drive, Suite 2100, Raleigh, NC 27606.

If we receive 500 applications by February 1, we will submit the special plate request to the NCDMV by February 15. The DMV will submit the application to the NC General Assembly by March 15 for review.

If the design is not approved all fees will be returned to you. To learn more about the process, please click here:

*If you sent in an application during the 2018 – 2019 license plate campaign, you will need to submit another application. The 2018 – 2019 applications and checks were securely shredded. Please submit the updated 2019 – 2020 application.
