Hawaii now offering up to $4,500 rebate for plug-in vehicles

Residents of Hawai'i have less than four months to take advantage of up to $4,500 in rebates for plug-in vehicles and $500 in incentives for the purchase and installation of a home or business charging system.

The rebates, offered by the Hawai'i Electric Vehicle Ready Program and administered by the Energy Office of the State Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism, are offered on a first-come, first-serve basis and are set to expire on September 30, 2011, or whenever the $1.4 million in stimulus funding is depleted.

Of course, these rebates are in addition to the federal tax incentive of up to $7,500 offered for plug-in vehicle purchases. To date, Hawai'i has reportedly approved 36 plug-in vehicle rebates and 38 charging station rebates. Forms and additional info are available on Hawai'i's Business Resource site.
