California NGV Incentive Project Now Open in California
The Natural Gas Vehicle Incentive Project (NGVIP), which is administered by the institute of Transportation Studies at U.C. Irvine on behalf of the California Energy Commission (CEC), is now accepting reservation applications for the purchase of new NGVs for use in California. The project’s available funding totals more than $10 million. The Natural Gas Vehicle Incentive Project (NGVIP) provides incentives to reduce the purchase price of new on-road natural gas vehicles for use in California. The incentives are available on a first-come, first-served basis and at varying levels depending on the gross vehicle weight.
Eligible applicants include individuals, firms and public agencies purchasing new NGVs for use in California. Eligible vehicles are new, on-road natural gas vehicles purchased after August 07, 2015 or the date on the submitted reservation confirmation, whichever is later. Vehicles must be registered in California and operated in the state at least 90 percent of the time for three years.
Details of the program are available in the application manual.
