The California Energy Commission-funded Natural Gas Vehicle Incentive Project (NGVIP) will provide $10.2 million in grants to reduce the purchase price of new, on-road natural gas vehicles (NGVs).
The NGVIP is now open to individuals, firms, government agencies, and other entities purchasing eligible NGVs for use in California. The project is being administered on behalf of the California Energy Commission by the Institute of Transportation Studies at UC Irvine.
Incentives are available through the NGVIP on a first-come, first-serve basis, and per-vehicle incentive amounts range from $1,000 (up to 8,500-pounds GVW) to $25,000 (at least 33,0001-pounds GVW), according to a document detailing the project.
Eligible vehicles must be new (2014 model-year or later) light-, medium-, or heavy-duty NGVs purchased on or after Aug. 7 that meet all of the California Air Resources Board's emissions requirements. In addition, vehicles must be registered and operating on natural gas in California (at least 90 percent of the time) for a minimum of three years, and must have engines prepped for natural gas with fully warranted natural gas fuel systems and other vehicle components.
The project is part of the California Energy Commisssion's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, which develops and deploys innovative technologies that transform California's fuel and vehicle types to help attain the state's climate change goals.
