There’s Never Been a Better Time to Upgrade Your Fleet to Cleaner Vehicle Technology

Clean truck and bus technologies are more accessible than ever to fleets in New York State. These advanced vehicles are typically less expensive to operate and often far less noisy than diesel trucks or buses, and dramatically reduce or eliminate tailpipe pollution.

The New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program (NYTVIP), administered by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA), helps make it easier for fleets to adopt clean vehicle technologies while removing the oldest, dirtiest diesel engines from New York roads. NYTVIP provides vouchers, or discounts, to fleets across New York State that purchase or lease all-electric (BEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), conventional hybrid electric (HEV), compressed natural gas (CNG), or propane medium- and heavy-duty vehicles (weight class 3 through 8) and scrap a similar older diesel vehicle that is part of their fleet. Voucher amounts are based on a percentage of the incremental cost of the vehicle, which is the difference in cost between the alternative fuel vehicle and a comparable diesel vehicle, up to a per-vehicle cap. Voucher incentive amounts may differ by vehicle technology, vehicle weight class, and location where the vehicle is domiciled. Voucher amounts are subject to funding availability and applicable per-project caps.
