Climate XChange, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization based in Massachusetts, is raffling off a Tesla Model S or X valued at $110,450 on 31 December with the intention of raising awareness of carbon pricing in a push for economy-wide carbon pricing in the Commonwealth. The organization will also pay the $36,730 in US taxes on the winner’s behalf, plus extras. Only 2,000 tickets are being sold.
Tickets are $250; more than 1,000 have been sold since the launch of the raffle in September. In addition to the Grand Prize Tesla, there are 5 other prizes, ranging from an electric bike to an iRobot vacuum.
Climate XChange has joined a formal coalition of environmental, business, and civic organizations in the Massachusetts Campaign for a Clean Energy Future, to establish carbon pricing in Massachusetts.
