Project 800

About the Project

CARB’s Project 800 initiative gathers drayage truck sales data from public incentive projects, as well as through direct outreach to manufacturers about their orders. Sales made today help jump-start this important segment in support of Governor Newsom’s Executive Order (N-79-20). In 2021, over 600 class 8 drayage trucks were ordered, serving California ports and freight facilities. These represent a first cut in a transformational period for clean truck technologies, with $75 million more in dedicated vehicle incentives and over $80 million in infrastructure incentives coming available as early as mid-2022. The count continues!

Transforming Trucks: Transforming Communities

The U.S. runs on trucks. More than 70% of the goods we use everyday—from the food we eat to the clothes on our backs—are moved from point A to point B (and C and D) on trucks. That’s not going to change anytime soon. As demand for trucking continues to grow, so does congestion, noise, and air pollution. Many in the trucking industry understand that this is a real problem but not enough know that clean trucking solutions exist for small businesses and fleets.

Transforming Trucks Transforming Communities (TTTC) is changing that. TTTC provides:

  1. Tools for Communities
  2. Tools for Fleets

Why Infrastructure Must Come First

In California and around the world, fleets are moving to zero-emission technology to reduce emissions, improve efficiency, and pursue operational benefits. Though technology has advanced, and fleets are realizing the business case of zero-emission vehicles, infrastructure remains the biggest barrier to technology adoption. When moving to zero-emission technologies, infrastructure planning must come first. We’re here to help!

Utility Coordination
