afvi fleets

New York State Gov­er­nor Andrew Cuo­mo has a $19 mil­lion ini­tia­tive for the New York Truck Vouch­er Incen­tive Pro­gram for clean trucks. It has an empha­sis on elec­tric vehi­cles, but it also pro­vides funds for nat­ur­al gas vehi­cles, and for the instal­la­tion of diesel par­tic­u­late fil­ters.

About $9 mil­lion for bat­tery-elec­tric trucks is being made avail­able imme­di­ate­ly via vouch­ers in 30 coun­ties around the state that did not meet fed­er­al clean air stan­dards. A $10 mil­lion alter­na­tive fuels vouch­er and diesel retro­fit fund­ing for New York City will be rolled out late this month and in Sep­tem­ber, respec­tive­ly. The vouch­er has gained sup­port to reduce the incre­men­tal costs of bring­ing in more clean trucks and bus­es to the state. Cal­start, based in Pasade­na, Calif., is help­ing admin­is­ter the pro­gram.
