    Update:
    Clean Vehicle Rebate Project, official web site

    $2,500 rebate. 85 and 60 kWh packs are now eligible, 40 kWh presumably to follow.

    Update: New funding has been added as of 3/1/13!

    Chart of remaining funds:

    (I believe that the red line, remaining minus pending, is the most realistic estimate of remaining funds.)

    Original post:

    So my understanding is that California currently offers a $2500 rebate for buying an electric vehicle, but this expires on June 30th (this according to Tesla's site). However, I found this proposed funding plan that seems to propose that the program be renewed for fiscal year 2012-13:

    AQIP Funding Plans

    (Direct link to plan: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/aqip/fundplan/AQIP_FY2012_FundingPlan.pdf)

    It will be presented to the board for approval on June 28th. That's cutting it close! Anyway, fingers crossed!

    Yeah, guess we'll have to see how the budget negotiations go. I think the legislature is due to submit their budget tomorrow. Then let the howling begin...

    I am pleased to say that I just got the cheque for $2500 for our Model S (the BGC).

    Is it true that the rebate is only for the 85kWh battery?

    CVRP Eligible Vehicles

    This might make me change my order (if I can) The difference in cost between 60kWh with supercharger and 85kWh drops to $5500 with the rebate and included supercharger.

    I just sent the CVRP people an email about the 60 kWh pack. Hopefully they will have it listed by the time I get my car, since I will want to reserve my rebate as soon as I get the car.

    There's still $6,718,879 remaining, so it should hold up for a couple more months, I hope.

    $5,634,279 remaining today. That's $1,084,600 since 12/31, which is an average of $135,575 per day. At that rate, there will only be $1.5M remaining at the end of the month.

    Damn, $271,500 in one day. Well, I guess that could be two days, depending on when they updated the page. I'm getting a little worried that my 1/27-2/10 delivery range is going to be too late.

    I guess it's out of the question that CA will extend/Renew the program. I'm not expecting delivery until March. Ugh

    that is about 100 people per day, correct?
    If they are pushing out maybe 1/4 - 1/2 of those as Model S' each day (if they are still getting out the same rate as they were on Dec 1)
    that will eat it up quick :eek:

    This sucks. With each passing day my decision to save $10k becomes more likely a savings of only $7.5k. :cursing:

    If I had known, I would have gone with the 85!
    Actually, if I had known a lot of things I would have been a very rich guy, but that's hindsight for you.

    $ 4,853,979 now

    Oh I just saw markb1's idea about updating one post to avoid clutter. I'll stop unless there hasn't been any update for some time.

    No problem. Maybe I should keep it in the top post. Pretty soon it's not going to matter, it seems.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Was just reading this:

    http://energycenter.org/index.php/incentive-programs/clean-vehicle-rebate-project/tesla-s-requirements
    You know, if I read this literally, it says that if you get your 60kWh Model S before it's on the list, your are forever ineligible for the rebate. They better hurry up and add it.

    @Kipernicus - I was getting concerned myself, so I called Colin Santulli (CVRP Program Manger).
    http://energycenter.org/index.php/incentive-programs/clean-vehicle-rebate-project/contact-cvrp
    He was very nice and assured me the 60kwh battery size will be eligible for the rebate. He said that it will be listed on the website about a week before the first delivery. I happily informed that deliveries could start this weekend :biggrin: He said not to worry and that he is just waiting on the final paperwork from Tesla. He assured me that even if I was to take delivery of the car before it's on the website that they will still honor the rebate. He also said is very confident that the CVRP funds should last through Februrary.

    Hope this eases you tension somewhat. No regrets on getting the 60kwh, it will be worth the wait :wink:
