Update: Just 1 day left to get a chance to win a Model S and promote carbon pricing awareness – CXC’s website.

The Model S is becoming a popular raffle prize and this raffle in particular is for a very good cause in-line with Tesla’s mission. Climate XChange (CXC) is a nonprofit organization with the goal to reduce global warming pollution and strengthen the economy through comprehensive market-based carbon pricing in Massachusetts. 

Tesla is not sponsoring the raffle, but CEO Elon Musk recently advocated for a carbon tax during the Paris conference.

CXC says that it is spreading the word about carbon pricing by reaching out to public officials, groups and citizens across the state. In 2013, the organisation commissioned an economic modeling firm to determine the feasibility of a state-level carbon market and they say that about 20% of the state legislature is now co-sponsoring a bill by Senator Barrett to introduce carbon pricing at the state-level.

Tickets cost $250 each (US only) and no more than 2,000 will be sold. As of now, CXC already sold over 1,000 and the raffle ends on December 31. The first prize is of course the Model S (or X your choice), for which the winner will be able to choose all the options for up to $110,000 and CXC takes care of the taxes.

There are a few other prizes and they are all powered by electricity. All the details are on CXC’s website.

    Hi, Fred… was totally surprised and elated to discover this article… thanks for the writeup! Senator Barrett’s bill has 43 co-sponsors and will implement revenue-neutral carbon-fee-and-rebate in Massachusetts. That means that all the money raised from carbon fees gets returned (rebated) to households and businesses, no net growth in government. And if we can do it here in Massachusetts, others will be able to see that it’s a good thing, and it will spread to other states. Text of the bill is at
