As an electric vehicle (EV) owner, you're contributing to a cleaner energy future by fueling your vehicle with electricity. PG&E customers with EVs are eligible to receive a $500 Clean Fuel Rebate for their use of electricity as a clean transportation fuel.
You must be a PG&E customer with an active residential electric account. As the account holder, you may also apply on behalf of an EV owner in your household (or tenant in a multifamily household) with the vehicle owner’s permission.
You must own or lease an eligible plug-in electric vehicle or have permission from the vehicle owner to submit the application.
Your vehicle, identified by its unique vehicle identification number (VIN), must not have already received the Clean Fuel Rebate under the current owner or any previous owner.
You must have paid the vehicle's current registration fees and your vehicle must be registered in California to the address on your PG&E account.
I learned of it via https://www.facebook.com/groups/BayLeaf ... 963224562/. It apparently began on 1/9/17 so it looks like I can't apply for it for my former '13 Leaf that I returned at end of lease since I no longer have it and am not paying for its current registration. Whoever owns it now, if they're in PG&E-land can.
Some of the verbiage is confusing (e.g. owner but leasing contract mentioned). But it looks like lessees can qualify. You can request one rebate per qualifying vehicle.
I applied last night (for my currently owned used Leaf) and received a processing application confirmation email.
