Gov. Cuomo releases funds for electric vehicles

Sponsored by

New York State Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced a $19 million incentive program to promote the purchase of battery-electric commercial trucks and energy-efficient vehicles.

Under the program, $9 million for electric vehicle vouchers will be offered in 30 counties around the state that did not meet federal clean air standards.

The other $10 million alternative fuels voucher fund for New York City will include compressed natural gas, hybrid-electric vehicles and retrofitting diesel engines with emission control devices.

"The Truck Voucher Incentive Program is another important step that New York State is taking to meet clean air standards," said Cuomo. "By focusing on advanced transportation technologies, including electronic and hybrid vehicles, we can provide cleaner communities in which to live and work," he said.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) is administering the program, and vehicle manufacturers, dealers and retrofit providers which will receive the vouchers are expected to pass on the full incentive in a lower price to buyers.
