NGVIP has $10,187,000 available “to reduce the purchase price of new on-road natural gas vehicles.” CEC wants to expand the use of “a domestically produced non-petroleum fuel that is a low-cost alternative to gasoline and diesel and has lower carbon emissions characteristics.”

“The incentives are available on a first-come, first-served basis and at varying levels depending on the gross vehicle weight,” CEC says.

$25,000 Maximum

NGVIP incentives range from $1,000 for the lightest natural gas vehicles to $25,000 for NGVs with a GVW in excess of 33,001 pounds.


To be eligible, vehicles must be new, model year 2014 or later. The vehicle must also be listed in CARB’s Certification Program and must be registered and operated on natural gas in California (at least 90% of the time) for at least three years. They vehicles must have engines prepped for natural gas with fully warranted fuel systems.

Only vehicles purchased after August 7th and earning approval from the CEC will be receive the incentives.

Details of the program are available in the NGVIP Application Manual (direct link to PDF).

The California Energy Commission has approved $12.1 million for new projects as part of ARFVTP, the Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program, with the bulk of the money – $11.2 million – going for natural gas vehicles.

CEC-logoAnd, in a new twist, the NGV money will be channeled through the University of California, Irvine. Administrative funds are coming not from the ARFVTP cache, but from the agency’s program support budget, freeing up a significant amount of money for the projects themselves.

“The major change that we are making to the process is to provide incentives/vouchers directly to vehicle purchasers,” says Andre Freeman, a fuels and transportation division specialist with CEC. “We are currently shooting for a March/April public workshop, and releasing the funds closer to summer,” he told F&F. 

Freeman notes that as the new program with UC Irvine takes shape, ARFVTP incentives for NGVs for fleets remain available via the agency’s NGVIP initiative.


In addition to the incentives “to put more natural gas vehicles on California roads,” CEC has approved
