Clean Vehicle Rebate Program (CVRP) - California Air Resources Board (ARB) - 600-10-005
The Energy Commission provided $2,000,000 to supplement the ARB's vehicle incentives under the CVRP. The CVRP provides incentives for freeway-capable plug-in electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles. As manufacturers' options and consumer interest in these vehicles increased, so has the need for vehicle incentives. The ARB initially allocated $9,000,000 in Air Quality Improvement Program funds for this purpose; however, this was insufficient for near-term demand. The additional funding from the Energy Commission provided incentives for 381 additional vehicles.
Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Program (HVIP) – California Air Resources Board (ARB) - 600-10-010
The Energy Commission provided $4,000,000 to supplement the ARB's vehicle incentives under the HVIP. The HVIP provides incentives for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles that utilize hybrid technology, such as hybrid-electric or hybrid-hydraulic. The incentive amount available through the HVIP increases based on the vehicles' gross vehicle weight. Funding is also available for medium- and heavy-duty vehicles that operate strictly on electricity; however, the incentive amount for these vehicles is not proportional to their higher costs. The Energy Commission's funds provided incentives for 150 battery- electric zero-emission commercial vehicles.
