    I filed my SCE $1,000 rebate application on December 19. It got approved on January 23. They mailed me my check today on February 28. I should receive it in a few days.

    Nope. Ugly orange. I had the glaring gold version on my first "Blue moon pearl" Prius.

    Purchased a new 2021 PP this weekend and the dealer told me that they will apply for the decal sticker for me. We had a less than glorious experience as this dealer and I'm concerned that they were feeding inaccurate information. Did the dealer apply for the decal sticker for you or did you have to apply separately with the state?

    Yes, we received the orange stickers promptly last year, but it looks like no one has received the blue sticker yet.

    On the application, it reads in BOLD that only the registered owner can apply.

    For more info on applying for the CAV decal: https://www.dmv.ca.gov/portal/vehicle-registration/license-plates-decals-and-placards/clean-air-vehicle-decals-for-using-carpool-lanes/

    FYI, you should do as much research as possible for any of the incentives you can receive (dont trust the dealer) whether it's from the CA, your county, or your utilities, any minor mistake on forms or application may result in you getting your application rejected and significantly delaying in receiving your benefits.

    I mailed my application from the post office on January 2, 2021. They cashed my check on March 29, 2021.

    I’m still waiting for the check to get cashed. Hopefully it will be sometime soon based on the timeframes reported in this thread.

    It looks like the processing time is three months. No, do not drive in the carpool lane without the stickers. The penalty is huge, and you may also get a moving violation.

    Well, we discussed this earlier. One sticker is one too many to leave the car undamaged. You need to attach the stickers on paint-protection film first. If you don't attach them all, the cops will think that you are using the other stickers on other cars and will ticket you.
