California Rebates, etc.

Thu Sep 21, 2017 7:48 pm

I thought the $2500 CA rebate is no more? Unless you're "low income", that is.

You have it backwards: the rebate was eliminated for "high income" EV purchasers/leasees in CA.

Funding bill was just passed last Friday. $140 million set aside to be used to fund the rebates. They can access the funds beginning October. Expect the flow of rebate checks to resume soon.

The California rebates didn't end or otherwise stop; can you provide a link to the contrary.

This is a future funding bill.

Funding ran low earlier this year so for everyone making greater than 3x the poverty level, the rebate was wait-listed. Now that the state legislature has approved additional funding, those on the wait-list will get their checks and the rest of us who apply going forward should get them until the funds run out again sometime next calendar year.

Your quoted article makes no reference to your claim that "everyone making greater than 3x the poverty level... was wait-listed."

I have never heard of such claim based in fact! This is the last I will detract from the main topic to clarify these mistaken posts.

OK: You have it backwards, as well!

There was no wait list for those eligible for the regular $2,500 California rebate in either 2016 or 2017, plain and simple!


These linked websites cover additional rebates over and above the $2,500 that were wait-listed that some may be eligible for, due to their earning less than 3x the Poverty Level

I think you need to read the links again. It clearly states that starting June 30, anyone applying for a standard rebate ($2,500), would be wait-listed until further funding becomes available.

If applying for the increased rebate, which applies only if you meet the poverty level restrictions, your rebate would still be sent regardless of when you filed.

Well, with this week's signing by Gov Brown, this is all happily moot now! :D
