California Alternative Fuel Grants & Incentives: A Valley Fleet Support Virtual Workshop

February 12, 2022

Listen to this article:

As California fleets face stricter emission standards and regulatory mandates, more and more public agencies and utilities are offering incentive programs to support California fleets in their transition to alternative fuel vehicle technologies. Understanding all the available programs can take substantial time and resources but missing out on these critical opportunities can be devastating. Fleets cannot afford to leave hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars on the table during the transition to cleaner technologies.

To assist fleets in navigating the clean technology funding landscape, Valley Fleet Support (VFS) will be hosting a virtual workshop to break down five active and upcoming incentive programs for California fleets. Speakers from each program will discuss eligibility, funding levels, the application process and conclude with a 30-minute open-floor question and answer period. VFS is inviting all California fleets to join the workshop, which will take place on February 15th, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT.
