The Long Island Power Authority is giving a little juice to electric car sales.

LIPA is offering a one-time rebate of $500 to customers who buy a plug-in hybrid or a plug-in electric vehicle.

So far, it is the first and only utility in New York state offering a rebate.

LIPA says the amount is equal to the cost of charging a vehicle for one year.
