    Starting a thread for people to post the status of their rebate applications. Please post:

    Delivery Date:
    Rebate Application Submission Date:
    Rebate Payment Date:

    Also post any relevant information you may receive from rebate administrators

    My info:
    Delivery Date: June 7, 2018
    Rebate Application Submission Date: June 8, 2018
    Rebate Payment Date: ??


    Also, I only received the automated response:
    "Hello,

    Your email to the Electric Vehicle Incentive Program has been received.

    Should you require a response, you will be contacted within 1 business day......"

    Anybody get more correspondence?

    Other than the email I haven't heard anything back just yet. I remember someone mentioning on here that they were going through April rebates a couple weeks ago. I think we're getting closer to getting ours.

    Already a thread about this, it'll likely take minimum 3-5months is my guess. Just wait for a surprise 14,000 in your bank account as they ask for a void cheque.

    All I've gotten was the automated email after I submitted it. I really don't understand why it takes so long to process these applications. Isn't it someone's dedicated job?

    This was joked on before... If it was your job to push these papers, and the new boss has promised to end the funding (your departments budgets). Would you work super fast and hard to get it all done or let it run over so you keep your job longer? Civil servants are there for life; they can poison entire water systems and get slaps on the wrist (Flint MI). So... yeah... it'll be a while. They want as much interest as possible out of that lump sum of money while they do their "Value for Dollar" audits aka stall and stall until people forget we have this money.

    Two theory here, after rebate ending

    1. They need process all remaining applications ASAP so they could dismiss that department

    2. Ppl working in that department want to delay all applications so they can keep their job longer.

    Is it one person doing all the work? That's insane how much time it takes.

    Why we will have to wait a long time to get our rebates........
    What we know... Q1 2018 there were 2244 eligible vehicles sold in Ontario (389 non eligible S, X, Porches, I8 & 740E). In Q2 estimates are 4808 eligible vehicles sold in Ontario. I don't think there were a lot sold between July 1 and 11, either way we have enough for a couple of calculations.

    Total Jan 1 - Jun 30 2018 = 7052 eligible vehicles. Assuming rebate office has 3 staff working on rebates (probably plus 1 supervisor and 1 admin), and assuming each staff working of rebates can process 1 per hour (who knows how motivated they are now!), that means that they can process 24 (3 x 8) per day x 5 days a week =120 per week or 58.7 weeks to process all applications. I applied on June 22nd. If I receive my before July 2019 I will be pleasantly surprised. I was going to subtract vacation and sick time from the calculation but I think I have depressed you enough already.

    Let's not forget that the worker is probably on leave, on their 8 week summer vacation or using some of the 46 sick days.

    I wouldn't joke about that, it'd be my fear. Did you guys hear about the several hundred million dollar wind farm project that was 90% complete, then the Ford govt cancelled the contract and passed legislation immunizing them from a lawsuit over it? These are not nice people we're dealing with. They've learned a thing or two from Trump. The German ambassador has raised the issue. That poor German company....out all that money...
