It's that time again when the California "Clean Vehicle Rebate Project" (CVRP) runs out of money to fund the rebate to Californians who buy EVs.
The funds ran out as of 6-29-17. I bought my Volt on 7-2-17. What exquisite timing, eh?
There's about $8,000,000 left to fund rebates for low income EV buyers. "Low income" means 300% of the Federal poverty level, or $36,180 for an individual, $48,720 for a couple. That rebate is $3000 for a Volt.
The standard rebate for "moderate income" people ($150,000 for an individual, $300,000 for a couple) of $1500 is on hold. People who make more than the "moderate income" limit don't get any rebate anyway. If you apply now, you'll be put on a waiting list awaiting renewed funding from the State.
