Grant Funding Up To $80,000 Available in San Joaquin Valley for Zero-Emission Trucks

Improving Air Quality in the San Joaquin Valley

Some of the nation’s worst air quality exists in cities within California’s San Joaquin Valley. Cities such as Bakersfield, the southern region of San Joaquin Valley, and Madera, further north in the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District (SJVAPC). The Sierra Nevada’s, Southern Coastal, and Transverse mountain ranges that surround the air district are responsible for trapping the air pollution from the nearly 300,000 daily trucks that pass through the 5-freeway from San Diego to the Oregon border. 

To improve the air quality and reduced the impact on respiratory health issues caused by vehicle pollutants, the SJVAPC introduced its Truck Replacement Program. The program offers fleets within the eight-county air district grants to replace their on-road diesel trucks with cleaner technology trucks, like ADOMANI’s zero-emission, all-electric trucks

The SJVPAC is currently accepting applications to replace on-road diesel trucks or to expand existing fleets with the cleanest technology available, such as all-electric vehicle technology, for their Truck Replacement Program. Priority is given to truck replacement projects within low income and disadvantaged communities in the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution District counties; San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Merced, Madera, Fresno, Kings, Tulare, and Kern county. 

The program is offering up to $80,000 in grant funding for the replacement of a 2010 or older model-year diesel engine truck with a 2018 or newer zero-emission class 4 to 5 truck. (See guideline chart below for additional grant funding options and truck class sizes.) Additionally, trucks must be domiciled within the SJVAPC district (See District map on this page). The trucks also need to be operated at least 75% in California and 50% within the SJVAPC district. The new truck must be operated in California at least 90% of the time and 50% of the time within the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution District. For complete requirements, see below.
