    I'm finally getting around to asking for my $2500 rebate using the CVRP form. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right places, but I have a couple of questions to which I don't see answers online. Perhaps those of you who have done this can help.

    1. Who do I put down as the Tesla contact? What phone number? What title?
    I just put "Sales" and gave their general sales number. I'm doubting that will be a problem. Anybody know different?
    2. They ask for "A complete copy of your executed and signed vehicle lease or purchase agreement." I don't think I have such a thing.
    The documents page on My Tesla has my Purchase Agreement, which looks good enough except that it isn't signed. I don't remember getting any sort of hardcopy, but maybe I did and misplaced it. They explicitly say "Please include all pages and sections with signature and date of purchase/lease visible." So what have people done successfully?

    Thanks!

    I gave them the final contract that is on "my tesla" showing full payment. I copied the DMV paperwork that they affix to the passenger side windshield to show the official title transfer and registration in my name, i.e., the temporary registration. I used my delivery specialist as the Tesla contact, although I doubt that it matters.

    I suppose that you could wait until you receive the pink slip in the mail and use a photocopy of that. But I used the temporary registration info along with the payment page on "My Tesla" and my request sailed through unfettered.

    I know this is an old thread, but I just want to mention that for #2 above, you could submit the "Purchase Agreement" downloaded from Tesla account page but you have to sign and date all the pages and re-scan them. I didn't read the CVRP form as carefully as OP so I submitted the form as is without any signature/date. Two months later, I got an email telling me to sign the forms. So I did it, re-submitted them and got the approval and "we will let you know when we mail our your check" email the next day. I still have not received the check yet a month later... not sure how long it will take.

    Ah 55 days sound right. It was around 2 months. I just re-read my approval email and it said the rebate check will be mailed out within 90 days of approval. So the whole process takes about 5 months.

    Did you submit anything else besides the unsigned Purchase Agreement? I submitted the Purchase Agreement unsigned but also included the signed (by both parties) Delivery Declaration that I signed when I picked up the 3. On the CVRP website, there is a pdf showing all the required documents to submit (and samples) including a section specific to Tesla:

    https://cleanvehiclerebate.org/sites/default/files/docs/nav/transportation/cvrp/documents/SampleSupportingDocuments.pdf

    For the Tesla purchase agreement is shows - Acceptable Tesla document combinations:

    Option 1: One document from Column A [Retail Installment Contract or Tesla Lease Agreement or Tesla Conditional Sale Contract and Security Agreement] or

    Option 2: All documents from Column B (electronically signed/time stamped) [Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement: Final Price Sheet and Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement: Vehicle Configuration Sheet] or

    Option 3: All documents from Column B (not signed; not time stamped) AND one signed document from Column C [Delivery Declaration and Due Bill or Motor Vehicle Purchase Agreement: Terms & Conditions]

    I went with Option 3 as I didn't have any from #1 or signed from #2.

    When we took delivery, we didn't receive any paper at all. 100% paper free. They said everything would be online later. But the only thing online was the Purchase Agreement pdf without any signature. I picked Option 2 but kind of missed the (electronically signed/time stamped) part.

    Two months later, I got "Your Application is Incomplete" email saying that
    Thank you for applying for a rebate with the Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP). While reviewing your supporting documents for application (application #), we noticed the following issue(s):

    Purchase/Lease Agreement:
    • A final signature was not included on the copy of your purchase/lease agreement. Please submit a complete copy of your agreement (including all pages and sections) with your signature visible. Your signature may be on the reverse side of the agreement.
    So I just printed them out, signed and dated them. Scanned the pages and resubmit them.

    Is there an order in which to apply for the HOV stickers and this $2500 rebate? Do you apply for one first, wait til you get it, then apply for the other? Or does it not matter?
