New York State Energy Research and Development Authority

EV Rebate Planned for New York State

April 12, 2016 in Electric Drive, EVs, fuel cells, money available by Rich Piellisch  |  No Comments

NYSERDA Cites Other States Offering $500 to $6,000

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is looking for help in crafting and running an electric vehicle rebate program. The agency notes that the state legislature has directed it to develop zero emission vehicle incentives, and that the 2016-2017 budget includes money for a ZEV rebate initiative.

NYSERDA wants a contractor top assist in evaluating its options “and, if New York State chooses to pursue a rebate program, to administer such a program.”

Up to $700,000 in NYSERDA funding is available.

The agency points out that New York is one of ten states that have adopted California’s ZEV Program regulations, and that under a program dubbed ChargeNY it has established a goal of deploying 3,000 EVSE/electric vehicle supply equipment charging stations to support the 40,000 ZEVs required by the ZEV rules by 2018.

EVSE Support Is in Place

But, “While New York State has worked to break down market barriers to ZEV adoption by increasing infrastructure availability, developing appropriate supportive policies and regulations, and broadening customer awareness,” NYSERDA says, the state “has not offered rebates or other financial incentives for purchasing ZEVs.

“About ten other states offer cash incentives on top of the federal income tax credits available for ZEV purchases, ranging from about $500 to $6,000.”

Two Phases

Depending on the mix of plug-in hybrids and all-electric vehicles, the agency says, the ZEV regulations call for the sale of approximately 10,000 ZEVs in New York State in the next 12 months, and approximately 15,000 ZEVs in the following 12 months. “This is a steep increase from the 3,000 to 4,000 ZEV sales per year in New York State from 2013 to 2015.

NYSERDA envisions a phase one exploratory phase, during which the contractor would provide guidance on program design and methods to engage such stakeholders as OEMs, car dealers, and car buyers. During the second phase, the contractor “would implement a rebate application and verification system, raise awareness of the rebate program among key stakeholders, and conduct and analyze program participant surveys.”

Proposals under NYSERDA RFP 3239 are due May 3.

NYSERDA Seeks a Dozen CNG Stations

Will Put Up as Much as $500,000 Per New Public Access Outlet

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority is making $3.6 million available to help increase the number of public access compressed natural gas fueling stations in the state.

NYSERDA-logoThe agency anticipates multiple awards resulting in approximately 12 new CNG stations under program opportunity notice 2818.

NYSERDA says it will make available as much as to $300,000 per site for eligible capital costs, including installation labor, to proposers willing to pay up to half the cost of a new CNG station, or up to $500,000 per site to those willing to ante 75%.

As NYSERDA Sees It, There Aren’t Not Enough NGVs

“Currently,” NYSERDA says, “the U.S. imports more than 47% of the oil it uses, while 98% of the natural gas used in the U.S. was produced in North America.

“Every gallon equivalent of natural gas used in vehicles is one less gallon of petroleum that has to be imported,” the agency says. Although natural gas vehicles meet the strictest emission standards, NYSERDA notes, “only about one-tenth of 1% of natural gas is used as a transportation fuel.”

The PON 2818 program does not cover engineering and permitting costs

Proposals are due July 9.
