Celebrating the 2,000th HVIP Voucher
Video: Clean air hybrid and zero emission truck milestone event
The California Air Resources Board, elected officials and industry celebrated the 2,000th Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher, awarded to Redwood Products of Chino, a small business that invested in a clean, low-carbon hybrid delivery truck. Cleaner trucks mean fewer unhealthy diesel emissions.
The incentive program has contributed to air pollution reductions in neighborhoods throughout California. Since its launch in 2010, the Hybrid and Zero-Emission Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP) has provided more than $63 million to help California fleets statewide purchase more than 430 zero-emission trucks and buses and 1,800 hybrid trucks and buses – and additional funding is on the way. Funding for this program is primarily supported through California Climate Investments, programs funded by the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund using proceeds from the state’s cap-and-trade auctions.
The California Air Resources Board (ARB) and partners, including CALSTART, celebrated the 2000th voucher with a check ceremony at Redwood Products of Chino on August 28.
