Refuse Reimagined

About the Project

Refuse collection trucks are ready for zero emission. The predictable routes and duty cycles of refuse trucks make them prime for electrification. CARB’s 2R Initiative aims to double the number of zero-emission refuse collection truck sales in California in 2023. The zero-emission trucks offer emission benefits and noise reductions to the communities in which they operate, and sales made today help jump start this important segment. With 12 HVIP-eligible refuse truck models from 7 manufacturers currently available, HVIP has supported the purchase of 41 zero-emission refuse trucks since the incentive project’s inception. Help us meet our 2023 goal!

How it Relates to HVIP

As part of CARB’s Refuse Reimagined initiative, a voucher enhancement of 25% is applied to HVIP eligible refuse vehicles used for solid waste collection starting November 18, 2022. This increased incentive amount is available until Dec. 31, 2024.

For the purposes of HVIP, vehicles eligible for the 25% Refuse Voucher Enhancement must:
  1. Be HVIP eligible;
  2. Collect garbage as a front load, rear load, side load, or other form of garbage packer truck; and
  3. Not be a roll-off or other form of waste transfer vehicle.

California ZEV Population Dashboard

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and other local, state, and federal partners have invested heavily in the deployment of zero-emission trucks and buses to meet California’s health-based air quality standards and greenhouse gas reduction goals.

For the first time, data from several medium and heavy-duty (MHD) zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) deployments has been compiled into a single dashboard alongside results from the first few years of the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) regulation. The California Zero-Emission Vehicle Population Dashboard tracks when and where MHD ZEVs are deployed in California and, if applicable, how much funding was provided to help put them on the road.

Watch our intro video to see how you can quickly use this tool to gather insights about MHD ZEV deployments in California.

A key feature of the dashboard is providing information over multiple geographic layers including Air District, County, State Assembly District, State Senate District, and Disadvantaged Community Status. This initial iteration of the dashboard includes deployed medium-duty and heavy-duty zero-emission vehicles, such as trucks and buses, and in the future will be expanded to include off-road vehicles, light‑duty vehicles, and vehicles supported by other funding or regulatory programs.

Click on the metrics, categories, or regions you are interested in, or use the filters at the right to explore the results.

As this dashboard was created from many separate datasets, every effort was made to ensure consistency and similarity of information across programs. The location coordinates are generated from the address provided by the funding program – if unavailable, zip code was used to approximate location. Vehicle type was classified consistent with the program that funded the vehicle or by using a combination of Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and vocational use information. For some vehicles, funding information was not available.

Cal Fleet Advisor

You don’t have to figure out transitioning to a ZEV on your own. Cal Fleet Advisor (CFA) is here to help! We guide truck fleets and owner-operators, no matter where you are in the transition process.

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. 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.


Coordination Groups


Electric School Bus

The Electric School Bus (ESB) Network California Forum is a series of virtual meetings for California districts interested in and working to accelerate the electrification of school bus fleets. Join CALSTART and your peers for the forum meetings to learn about ESB adoption in the state of California. Forum participants will receive funding opportunity updates, gain insights from industry experts, and learn from other districts that are electrifying their school bus fleets.

San Joaquin ZEB

The San Joaquin Valley Zero-Emission Bus Forum (Valley ZEBs) is an inclusive platform for urban and rural transit agencies located in the San Joaquin Valley in California. The forum has explored innovative technologies, shared learnings, and received funding resource updates. The administrator brings forth manufacturers and experts in the industry to help agencies, while simultaneously capturing challenges and lessons learned to achieve a smooth zero-emission bus fleet transition.

Why Infrastructure Must Come First

Infrastructure readiness remains the biggest barrier to advanced vehicle deployment. EnergIIZE Commercial Vehicles (Energy Infrastructure Incentives for Zero-Emission) is the nation’s first commercial vehicle fleet infrastructure incentive project. Funded by the California Energy Commission’s Clean Transportation Program, EnergIIZE provides incentives for infrastructure equipment for battery-electric and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. The project provides a user-friendly and streamlined process through targeted incentives across four different funding lanes.

Utility Coordination

Find your utility

Several utilities provide incentives to fleets in their service territory. If you don’t know who your utility provider is, check out, select the “Layer List” icon (second from left), check the Electric Load Servicing Entities boxes (clear all others), then type the vehicle domicile address in the search bar. Information will pop up including the name of the utility that services this property.

Policies and Resources


ACT Policy

The Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) standard requires manufacturers to sell an increasing fraction of zero-emission trucks. It previously required large entities and fleets to report information about their vehicles.

Loan Assistance

The Truck Loan Assistance Program helps small-businesses secure financing to upgrade their fleets with newer trucks and comply with California’s Truck and Bus Regulation.

Program Website

CARB's Truck Stop

CARB’s Truck Stop provides information about truck and trailer requirements, compliant fleets, and financial assistance for truck drivers and fleets.

ICT Policy

The Innovative Clean Transit (ICT) standard requires all public transit agencies to transition to a 100 percent zero-emission bus fleet and encourages agencies to provide innovative first- and last-mile connectivity to improve mobility for transit riders.

ICT Website


The Clean Transit Innovation Network (CTIN) is a centralized help center for United States transit agencies and representatives seeking a step-by-step pathway to creating cleaner bus fleets.

ACF Policy

CARB is developing standards for medium- and heavy-duty fleets to transition to zero-emission vehicles (Advanced Clean Fleets or ACF) with the goal of achieving a zero-emission truck and bus fleet in California by 2045 everywhere feasible and significantly earlier for certain market segments.

HVIP does not prohibit vehicles receiving incentives from being used for future ACF compliance purposes. In other words, an HVIP-funded vehicle purchased prior to or in excess of regulatory requirements can be used to count toward future requirements where applicable.

Purchase means having secured a purchase order or other sales agreement.

Drive to Zero Tools

CALSTART’s Drive to Zero aims to enable and accelerate the growth of global zero-emission commercial vehicles with the vision that zero-emission technology will be commercially viable by 2025 and dominant by 2040. Drive to Zero provides a Zero-Emission Technology Inventory (ZETI) and Polices and Actions Tool Kit.

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). CARB estimates by end of 2023, 929 Class 8 drayage trucks have been ordered. These represent a first cut in a transformational period for clean truck technologies, with state incentives increasing. The count continues!
