Hopefully, you remember our blog post from last year about the Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Program (HVIP) that California had begun. Now in its second year, California is committing an additional $19 million to the effort. Started under the California Air Resources Board (CARB), the program provides vouchers on a first-come, first-served basis to help companies within the state purchase medium- and heavy-duty hybrid vehicles.
In its first year, HVIP was able to get more than 650 hybrid vehicles on the road – this year it hopes to do more. The launch date for vouchers this year was February 15th, but there is still time to sign up! Fleets can reserve up to $40,000 through participating truck dealerships.
