[Oeva-list] "Drive Green Save Green" program honors hybrids, not EVs

Or better yet, why not cut me a check for not even charging an EV and driving into Portland at all?

  Does anyone on the list have experience with applying for the Drive Green Save Green program offered by city Center Parking and the Oregon Environmental Council?
  I was denied a $15 per month discount because I have a 100% EV, not a hybrid. This seems silly to me.

  I was encouraged to write a letter to Brad Cannon, manager of City Center Parking, asking that I be offered the discount, and asking him to provide the rationale for not honoring 100% EV drivers.

  On their site www.drivegreensavegreen.org, they claim:  

  OEC has partnered with City Center Parking in Portland to create Drive Green Save Green, a program to help drivers reduce their environmental footprint.
  Find out about special perks for hybrid car owners at City Center Parking, or on this special feature by KGW-TV news, and check out great green maintenance tips for all drivers below.

  If the goal is to encourage reduction of footprint, why give perks to only hybrid drivers?  That's rewarding half-measures! 
  I can imagine many reasons - mostly political or financial - for not honoring EVs.   
  Before I get all "conspiracy theory" crazy, I would like to hear from others who may have tried this approach already.
