On your journey to deploy a zero-emission vehicle, HVIP is only one part of that equation. Our Industry Initiatives Page aims to provide you with other resources that will be vital as you continue to dive into your zero-emission transformation.
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!
Funding programs include:
- Volkswagen Environmental Mitigation Trust for California
- Low Carbon Transportation Demos and Pilots
- U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Targeted Air Shed Grant Program
- Prop 1B Goods Movement Emissions Reduction Program
- Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee
- We’re also counting numbers directly from manufacturers!
800 Trucks by 2022
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:
- Tools for Communities
- 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!
Several utilities provide incentives to fleets in their service territory. If you don’t know who your utility provider is, use the California Electric Service Utility Areas map to find out.
