The California Air Resources Board (CARB) has just approved an action that will see the states’ Clean Vehicle Rebate Project receive an additional $116 million in funding:

“The California Air Resources Board took two separate actions today that combined will continue to support the development and deployment of advanced vehicle technologies, provide incentives for clean-cars and improve existing vehicle retirement and replacement programs.”

Highlights of the plan include:

Clean Cars

$116 million to support the highly successful Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP), which offers rebates directly to consumers who purchase zero-emission and near-zero-emission passenger cars.

Fuel-cell electric vehicles, which run on hydrogen, are now eligible for $5,000 per vehicle.

Additionally, CARB allocated funding for heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles, as well as for zero-emission technologies employed in other transport sectors:

  • $10 million to $15 million in incentives for the purchase of heavy-duty hybrid and electric vehicles, such as delivery trucks.
  • $20 million to $25 million for large-scale pilot projects to provide robust demonstrations of zero-emission technologies in the freight and transit sectors.
  • $50 million for advanced technology freight demonstration projects, including zero-emission drayage trucks (that service ports).

    CA Revenues from the $11-13/ton CO2 auctions keep rising into the .5-1bb range. It’s a huge rebate spigot, that is also going lots of places.

    In contrast, MA may riffle through its 1.9mm. ~7% gone, in two weeks.
