CALSTART Continues to Administer Calif. EV Incentives (Ind. Report)
Date: 2012-02-06
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has again selected CALSTART to manage the nation's largest incentive program for electric and hybrid trucks and buses, as well as approved an $11 million contract to help further the initiative. Initially launched in 2010, the CARB program has led to the deployment of more than 1,000 electric and hybrid trucks and buses throughout the Golden State.

Unlike complicated tax policies or manufacturer rebates, the CARB voucher program provides a direct cost reduction to the dealer, and the savings are transparent and evident to the fleet buyers. As a result, other government agencies, including the California Energy Commission and the South Coast Air Quality Management District, have elected to add funds to the CARB program to meet their strategic objectives.(Source: CALSTART, February, 2012)

Chevy Volt Added to Tennessee EV Rebate Program (Ind. Report)
Chevrolet Volt
Date: 2012-02-03
The Volunteer State is adding a second car model to its EV rebate program, which so far has drawn far fewer participants than expected. WSMV-TV reported Wednesday that the state will soon begin offering $2,500 rebates to owners of the hybrid-electric Chevrolet Volt. Until now, the rebate program in Tennessee was only open to purchasers of the all-electric Nissan LEAF.

Participants in the program must agree to allow data about how they use and charge their vehicles to be collected for a government-funded study. The information is being gathered by the California-based ECOtality. The company received a $99 million stimulus grant from the U.S. Department of Energy. The state added $2.5 million in matching grant money for the rebates.(Source: WSMV-TV, February 1, 2012)

Hawaii Recharges EV Rebate Program (Ind. Report)
Date: 2012-01-31
The state of Hawaii has recharged its EV rebate program with an additional $150,000 in funding and has extended the deadline for rebates on new EVs, PHEVs and chargers another two months. The deadline for the state's EV rebate program was pushed to March 31 from the Jan. 31, 2012 deadline that had been extended from September, 2011, the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism said in a statement.

The rebates of up to $4,500 for the purchase of an EV and up to $500 for EV chargers issued are on a first-come, first-served basis and will run through the March 31, 2012 deadline or when funds run out, whichever comes first. Over the past year, the state has approved 528 rebates for 318 EVs and 210 chargers. The additional funding brings to $303,999 the amount left in the rebate program.(Source: Energy Hawaii, January 30, 2012)
