The California Clean Fleet Accelerator Program
Vehicles are the largest emitter of carbon pollution in California, and switching from gas-guzzlers to zero emission electric transport is crucial for a healthy future. Former Gov.Jerry Brown and Gov. Gavin Newsom both issued executive orders to get more ZEVs on the road and phase out the sale of gasoline-powered cars by 2035 — because if we’re going to seriously address the climate crisis, we have to transform the transportation industry. AB 1110 will help California adopt cleaner, more equitable transportation solutions.
Right now, larger municipalities are able to more easily switch vehicles that usually run on diesel — buses, delivery trucks, and vans — to electric. However, many small school districts, rural transit agencies, and small local governments face serious logistical and technical challenges in their efforts to transition to clean vehicles. AB 1110 would make it easier for these public entities to acquire ZEVs by offering assistance through the Office of the Clean Vehicles Ombudsman and making ZEVs more affordable through reduced bulk-purchasing costs and low-cost financing tools.
