$40 million to advance zero-emission off-road freight equipment
About the Clean Off-Road Voucher Incentive Project
CORE, analogous to the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), is a new project intended to encourage California fleets to purchase or lease currently commercialized zero-emission off-road freight equipment by providing a streamlined voucher process for potential purchasers to receive funding to offset the higher cost of such technologies. CORE voucher amounts are based on the incremental cost of the piece of zero-emission off-road equipment being purchased. Additional funding is available for equipment deployed in disadvantaged communities, as well as bulk deployment purchases, extended warranties, and charging infrastructure. CORE targets commercialized zero-emission products that have not yet achieved a significant market foothold.
Preliminary list of eligible types of zero-emission equipment:
- On- and off-road terminal tractors
- Transport Refrigeration Units (TRUs)
- Forklifts (greater than 8,001 lbs. lift capacity)
- Container handling equipment
- Airport cargo loaders
- Wide-body aircraft tugs
- Railcar movers
- RTG cranes
- Mobile and Ground Power Units
- Shore Power Cable Systems
- First-come, first-served basis. No application deadline; open until funds are exhausted
- Rapid Response Time: Applicant is notified within 30 business days of submitting application for funding
Additional funding available for:
- Disadvantaged Communities
- Small Fleet
- Limited Infrastructure
how you can participate
Work Group Meeting Schedule
Manufacturers, dealers and interested users of zero-emission off-road freight equipment were invited to participate in the Clean Off-Road Equipment (CORE) Voucher Incentive Project Work Groups to discuss the implementation guidelines of the program.
The goal of these working group meetings was to gain feedback on the Implementation Manual Framework Document. When finalized, the Implementation Manual will be the guidelines with instructions, procedures, project elements for manufacturers, dealers, and equipment users to follow when participating in CORE. Each meeting will cover the same topics, it is not necessary to attend more than one.
