The application paperwork here in Texas was fairly straight forward. Easily accessed on-line, printed and they did a decent job explaining what is needed and how it all works. Got it all in the mail about 2 weeks ago (purchased a Leaf in late October). Received my return-receipt-requested card about 5 days after mailing, so at least they have my application in-hand. I will let you all know when I receive the expected $2,500 from the great State of Texas. Still plenty of moneys in the funding balance for this program in Texas (also easily looked up on-line). But ends about June 2015.

And .... the dealership here in San Antonio had no idea what was needed (they need to sign one of the pages), or that the Texas law requires them to maintain the file for at least 2 years after my purchase. Salesman told me I was the first customer he knew about submitting this paperwork. Wow.

Just like the $7,500 from the feds (tax credit that is still in effect) and the $3,500 immediate rebate from Nissan financing (ended Oct 31st) to help them move these units out the door. None of this makes any sense, until you realize other Nissan customers and your fellow citizens are subsidizing your purchase because of the law. So I am net out the door at purchase price under $17,300 for an "S" model with the 6.6 kw charger option installed, and most likely costs Nissan about $60,000 per unit to produce.

Still driving by gas stations.....

Nahinman,

Yes ! I received my $2,500 check from the great State of Texas. The check arrived in the mail mid-January and I had sent in my submittal the last day or so of October. I needed to re-submit one of the documents in mid-November after getting a letter telling me about the requirement.

Heads up - - - - the Texas paperwork that comes with the check states that I promise to drive it at least 2 years before selling.

About 4300 mile on that puppy to-date (base model with the 240v charger). Perfect for my commute (55 miles RT) and just using the 120v slow charger in the garage. Still cannot justify the cost of a 240v faster charger cord and garage outlet. Simple is good.

USPS said my application was delivered on January 5th, but no sign of the either the check or a letter requesting corrections. Hopefully the check will show up soon.

I received a letter saying my rebate was approved a week or 2 after I posted my question.

Finally received my check around 10 January. Just took awhile - a little over 2 months
all together.

Bumping this for an update... I'm about to submit my application for my newly leased 2015 SV.

Still $4.9 million left in the fund and deadline is June 26th.

Fun fact: of the 1095 contracts to date, 566 are for the Leaf. Volt is #2 with 233

Just off the phone with Austin. Rebates are taking at least a full two months at this point. They go through two stages - paperwork/package validation first (mine took from March 2 to April 8), then 'contracting' for payout. Due to a "large influx' of applications received in the past month, it's taking a good month to work through the contracting queue.

In other words, things are still moving at the speed of government. ;)
