*The funding amount for Standard HVIP fluctuates due to the determination of valid voucher requests, voucher enhancements, and cancellations.

**Out of these funds, 70% of Standard HVIP and the Drayage set-aside will be reserved for private fleets with 100 vehicles or fewer and all public fleets, starting January 1, 2023. If more than $100 million remains in the reserve on July 1, 2023, HVIP will release 30% of the remaining funding to private fleets with more than 100 vehicles. If funding remains in the reserve on November 1, 2023, HVIP will open all remaining HVIP standard funding and drayage set-aside funding to private fleets with more than 100 vehicles. The reserve only applies to the FY22-23 allocation – any remaining FY21-22 funds will be available for fleets of all sizes. 

Stacking
for Small Fleets

Effective 1/1/23, fleets size 10 vehicles and smaller can combine state funding sources with HVIP if the other program allows stacking, each incentive program is not paying for the same incremental cost, and the non-HVIP incentive program is not required to generate greenhouse gas emission reductions.

Programs that can now be stacked with HVIP for small fleets include Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program and the CARB Truck Loan Assistance Program. A list with additional programs is expected to be published in the FY22-23 Implementation Manual in early 2023.

For other information on stacking, see page 28 in the FY21-22 Implementation Manual. Per the IM, transit buses operated by or on behalf of a city or county government; a transportation district / transit district; or a public agency, including paratransit and microtransit services may stack State-funded incentives with HVIP regardless of fleet size. When stacking HVIP vouchers with other funding sources for public transit buses, HVIP funding may be combined with the provision that HVIP will only fund the remaining cost up to the maximum voucher amount after the other incentives have been applied at their maximum allowable amounts.

 

Fleet Size Adjustments
and Bulk Purchase Requirements

Starting Jan. 1, 2023, voucher amounts will be modified according to the table below. Voucher requests from fleets with 100 or more vehicles with a GVWR greater than 8,500 lbs under common ownership and control and domiciled in California, will not progress to the status of “Funded” in the VPC until on or after April 3, 2023, to allow for the release of a new Implementation Manual, dealer training, and necessary system updates.

Also starting Jan. 1, 2023, a Bulk Purchase requirement is in effect for private fleets with 501 or more vehicles with a GVWR greater than 8,500 lbs under common ownership and control and domiciled in California. Also, such fleets can only request vouchers for vehicles domiciled in a Disadvantaged Community (DAC). Requests for vehicles not domiciled in a DAC will be canceled.

The Bulk PO will be required to be uploaded to the VPC when the voucher batch progresses to the status of Funded on or after April 3, 2023. Specifically, the PO must be for at least 30 HVIP eligible vehicles, and the HVIP incentive will be applied only for vehicles purchased above 30. The existing fleet voucher request limit of 30 vouchers per fleet per year (50 vouchers for drayage trucks) continues to apply, regardless of the size of the bulk order. POs can be no older than 3/30/22.

Bulk purchases are not required for fuel cell vehicles; they can be purchased in any quantity.

Voucher Adjustment Type and Adjustment to Base Amount
Public and Private fleets with 10 or fewer MHD vehicles: +15%
Private fleets with 101 – 500 MHD vehicles: -20%
Private fleets with more than 500 MHD vehicles: -50%

California Native American Tribal Governments are exempt from the reductions above. Additionally, purchases of fuel cell vehicles are not subject to the reductions.

FY22-23 Eligible ePTO Voucher Table

 
Energy Storage Capacity Base Vehicle Incentive*
3 – 10 kWh $20,000
10 – 15 kWh $30,000
16 – 25 kWh $40,000
> 25 kWh $50,000

*Effective November 18, 2022, ePTO funding amounts may cover up to 65% of the incremental cost of the ePTO vehicle, not to exceed the funding levels listed in this table.

Example Calculation

An approved vehicle’s voucher amount is determined by multiplying the appropriate base incentive amount with applicable voucher modifiers. There can be multiple modifiers, but the additions or subtractions do not compound. This example is for illustrative purposes only. A local air district grant provides $100,000 to a private fleet to replace an old truck with a new $140,000 diesel truck of 35,000 lbs GVWR. HVIP augments this grant by providing a $150,000 voucher for the purchaser to upgrade to a $300,000 zero-emission truck. The zero-emission truck incremental cost is $160,000. HVIP voucher amount combined with the air district funding cannot exceed 90 percent of the zero-emission vehicle purchase cost (excluding taxes and fees). HVIP funding may not pay for any taxes or fees. Taxes and fees must be paid for by another funding source.

In this case, $150,000 HVIP voucher < $160,000 vehicle incremental cost

$100,000 district grant + $150,000 HVIP voucher = $250,000

$300,000 * 90% = $270,000

$250,000 total public funds < 270,000

The transaction can proceed without discounting HVIP voucher.
