How many do we have in San Diego on the board?

Please post and let us know, along with your approximate location...

I'm in Tierrasanta, and waiting for my Leaf to arrive!!!!

And, if you didn't know, the Center for Sustainable Energy is managing what's left of the $5K rebates for California, and they are located on Balboa Avenue in Kearny Mesa...I'll probably be dropping off my application in person as soon as I can....

Hi. I reserved a Leaf on 4/20 and live in Rancho Penasquistos (a community in San Diego). I didn't realize that the Center for Sustainable Energy was handling the CA rebate for the Leaf. I had some discussions with those folks when our photovoltaic system was being installed several years ago. Are you saying that you can apply for the $5K rebate before you actually order or take delivery of a Leaf? Please explain.

The above link is for the rebate page at the Center for Sustainable Energy. The link for the Leaf's rebate application is not active at this time and it says "coming Dec 2010". As I recall from browsing previously, I think you need to provide proof of registration to move forward with the rebate.

So, unfortunately, that probably means we can't apply until we get the car...I hope the money lasts or is renewed, since right now it is only funded for $4.1M and includes other vehicles...

I have not found how much of the $4M remain.
It is possible that it will be exhausted ... when?

Apparently one can apply to reserve a rebate amount, and then get the registration and sales paperwork to them in something like 10 days?

IIRC, your paperwork has to be submitted within 10 days of doing the online application. So if you know for sure you're going to get your car registration documents in time, you could submit the application a week or so in advance of them.

I just read the rebate rules:
... required documentation ... postmarked within 14 calendar days of the on-line application.

LOL! I could swear it was 10 days last time I looked.

Well, maybe I read the wrong thing, or maybe it was 10 (working) days and they clarified with calendar days?

No matter, 14 days is better!
