    Wow -- that's a pretty big state incentive! I get none at all here in MN.

    I suspect it is tied to the size of the battery (as the Fed. tax rebate is), but I haven't seen any documentation on it and don't have any idea where to look for it.

    Here is some information I received after talking with Darwin Burkhart.

    Contact: Darwin Burkhart

    Phone: (217) 524-5008

    1. This is the person to speak with to give definite answers as of 5-16-12
    2. Problem #1: IL only awards up to 1 million dollars per year. They already have $750,000 in application requests, they are likely to run out of funds before we apply.
    3. Problem #2: rebate checks are very slow in arriving to customers.
    4. Problem #3: vehicles must be purchased in IL. PIP are not yet available for sale plus Darwin said they will not qualify.
    5. Problem #4: conversion kits must be purchased and installed in IL. Plus they must be installed by an approved business.
