Fleets and OEMs Must Partner to be Eligible
The Houston-Galveston Area Council has partnered with the Center for Transportation and the Environment in offering grant funding to help pay for the deployment of medium and heavy duty zero-emission delivery vehicles.
Public and private fleets are invited to apply, as long as the vehicles operate within the Houston-Galveston-Brazoria of Texas. Applications “must include a partnership between a fleet/vehicle owner and an original equipment manufacturer,” H-GAC says, and applicants are expected to provide two years of data collection and reporting.
“In total,” says the agency, “the project includes deployment of at least 30 all-electric medium/heavy-duty delivery trucks. Technologies eligible for this particular project include zero emission all-electric trucks configured as a box trucks or step vans.”
Approximately $1 million in grant funding is available for regional fleets.
The closing date under Call for Projects TRN14-06 is December 31. The initiative is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy.
