Carl Moyer Off-Road Equipment Replacement Program (for Sacramento Metropolitan Area) Air Resources Board

 

Replace high-polluting off-road equipment Approx.

$10 million

The Off-Road Voucher Incentive Program (ORVIP) provides a streamlined approach to reduce emissions by replacing existing, high-polluting equipment with newer, lower-emission equipment. The ORVIP provides real emission benefits by retiring the high-polluting equipment earlier than would have been expected through normal attrition or by regulation. Carl Moyer Program funds for voucher projects are used to offset part of the cost of the replacement equipment. Due On First-Come, First-Served Basis

PG&E Charge Program PG&E EV Infrastructure Multi-unit dwelling and workplaces (minimum ten parking spots) Transportation is the largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in California. The state is now pushing for a large increase in the adoption of electric vehicles. In 2012, Governor Brown signed an Executive Order calling for 1.5 million zero emission vehicles on our roads by 2025. In December 2016, the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approved a three-year program to install up to 7,500 Level 2 electric vehicle (EV) chargers at multi-unit dwelling and workplaces. The chargers will be installed throughout PG&E’s service territory between 2018 and 2020. If you have at least ten parking spots that can be used, this program provides an opportunity to contribute to California’s energy goals, while also improving your property.
