The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and CALSTART have announced the reopening of the popular HVIP Incentive Program. This year’s program makes available $165 million to California-based businesses that will upgrade their fleets with new, zero-emission and near-zero-emission clean vehicles. This great program is a first come, first served opportunity to make electric and hybrid trucks as affordable as their fossil-fueled predecessors in an effort to reduce emissions in the state of California.
This year’s HVIP funds have 2 release dates: the first has already seen the funds exhausted, and the second starts on August 10th. Drayage trucks and Class 8 commercial trucks are exempt from the pause in support of CARB’s Project 800 initiative. This project has a goal of 800 zero-emission drayage trucks in 2021, advancing California’s clean transportation sector.
Greater vehicle options in CARB 2021 program is paving the way for more businesses and public fleets to embrace clean air vehicles as well as to help the market grow and accelerate these technologies.
Since its inception, HVIP has provided over $400 million in funding to help businesses and public fleets deploy more than 7 thousand clean air vehicles.
We are excited to help our local businesses be part of the 2021 HVIP program. We encourage you to call us to get onboard while funds are available. In addition to the immediate savings, the long-term savings and benefits are substantial. With fuel costs rising and savings on maintenance, this program is a huge benefit to our local San Diego businesses that need to upgrade or add to their existing fleets.
Don’t Delay – the $165 million in funding will run out!
Every year these funds are exhausted quickly. The 2-phased approach this year will help more businesses get an opportunity, but we urge you to act quickly. Call our helpful staff right away for details and assistance. For complete details, go to HVIP Open for New Voucher Requests
