A few days ago I also received email notice that my application for my $450 rebate has been approved. I have alerted four EV driver friends in my area to this rebate, but so far to my knowledge only one of them has actually applied. I got the same letter as Boomer, warning of up to 90 days delay.
At first I was not quite clear on the concept as to how this in an effective incentive, since we already have the cars. One of the main points is that each successive owner of your EV can apply for another rebate on the car, so that is a nice incentive for buying a used EV.
I believe more effort should be made to find incentives for installing at least the wiring for EV charging in new construction, especially apartments and condos. A lot of that going in around here. I hope to present this idea to my local planning commission meeting at some point.
