Under its Green Rewards program, the Treasurer’s Office has committed $2 million in rebates to make high-mileage hybrid vehicles, which run on gasoline and electricity, more affordable. Illinois drivers are eligible for a $1,000 rebate with the purchase of a new hybrid or other fuel efficient vehicle. Participating banks and credit unions agree to accept a discounted deposit rate from the state for one year in exchange for providing the $1,000 rebates to Illinois residents.
