The goals of the CEC imitative, detailed under (program opportunity notice) PON-13-602, are to

  • identify conversion compatibilities with specific vehicles and vehicle classes;
  • develop guidelines for conversions including, but not limited to, minimum parts that must be included and minimum installation requirements;
  • determine the warranty requirements for conversion components;
  • ensure that any existing vehicle warranties are not voided as a result of repowering, or comparable replacement warranty is provided; and
  • identify and address technical issues of zero-emission electric truck conversions.

CEC will take written questions until the date of a pre-application workshop in Sacramento on July 22.

Answers will be disseminated by August 7, and proposals are due August 21.
