Grants & Loans for Hybrid Medium to Heavy-duty Trucks

Fuel savings of 35-50%, plus grants and low interest loans -- all to help medium and heavy duty trucking transition to hybrids. Wow!

Find green business solutions
Cascade Sierra Solutions is applying for a national grant program for hybrid truck applications. The grant will provide 25% of the truck purchase price. The grant can be combined with a federal tax credit of $6000-$12,000 or other applicable state and local incentives. Financing options are available through Cascade Sierra Solutions for the remainder of the purchase if needed.

This project aims to promote medium to heavy-duty hybrid truck technology as a viable commercial alternative to conventional diesel trucks, create a venue to document fuel efficiency and emissions benefits, and provide the immediate creation of jobs to support the goals of President Obama's stimulus package.

Close to 1000 hybrid trucks are operating in North America producing fuel savings of 35% to 50% over trucks they are replacing. CO2 emissions are reduced by similar percentages. Hybrid trucks are now available for many vocational, stop and go, and long-haul applications implementing newer technologies such as power assisted take-off (PTO), regenerative braking, and emission free no-idle operation. For a list of available Hybrid truck models, visit www.edf.org/models

There is a very tight time line to be part of the CSS grant application for Hybrid truck purchases.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING THE INFORMATION IS MARCH 31, 2009

Cascade Sierra Solutions worksto improve emissions and trucking sustainability along the west coast, including Oregon and California. Cascade Sierra Solutions is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping trucking businesses gain access to clean, fuel efficient technologies. CSS identifies, promotes, and finances the use of clean technologies to reduce fuel consumption and air pollution in transportation corridors.
