Alternative Fuel Vehicle Incentive Program

AB 1811 provides incentives for research and production of alternative fuels made in ways to protect California from climate change.

The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Incentive Program (abbreviated as AFVIP, also known as Fueling Alternatives) is funded by the California Air Resources Board (CARB), offered throughout the State of California and administered by the California Center for Sustainable Energy (CCSE). A total of $1.8 million was appropriated and directed toward vehicle incentive rebates to promote the use and production of vehicles capable of running on alternative fuels. Such alternative energy sources include Compressed Natural Gas and electricity via all-electric vehicles and Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV)

Assembly Bill AB 1811

Pursuant to Assembly Bill (AB 1811), the California Air Resources Board (ARB) is to develop a joint plan with the California Energy Commission to spend $25 million for the purposes of incentivizing the use and production of alternative fuels.

There are a number of state policy directives that call for substantial expansion of the use and production of alternative fuels made from biomass and to reduce dependence on petroleum-based fuels. These include the Climate Action Plan, Executive Order S-06-06, and the Bioenergy Action Plan for California. To support these policy directives, AB 1811 provided $25 million to incentivize and fund:

  • Market-based incentives for high efficiency, high mileage, alternative fuel light, medium, and heavy duty vehicles, both individual and public fleets, in California.
  • Production incentives for alternative fuel production in California;
  • Market-based incentives for the construction of both publicly accessible alternative fuel retail refueling stations and fleet fueling facilities; including E-85.
  • Funding for research, development, and testing of alternative fuels and vehicle technology.
  • Incentives to replace the current state vehicle fleet with clean, high mileage alternative fuel vehicles.
