Up to $5 Million Grant – Deadline is November 16!
Improve the Energy Efficiency of Medium and Heavy-Duty Vehicles
The Green Freight Program: Stream 2 (Repower and Replace) offers 50% cost-share funding up to $5,000,000 towards supporting fuel-switching projects, engine repowers, and purchases of low-carbon alternative fuels for medium and heavy-duty vehicles (Class 2b – Class 8). There are two project categories:
- Permanent modifications that reduce diesel consumption and GHG emissions by facilitating the use of low-carbon alternative fuels (e.g., engine/drive-train replacements, implementing dual-fuel technologies, adding kits to trucks, etc.). Vehicles must be in service for at least 1 year prior to applying.
- Purchase of alternative fuel vehicles
- Funding supports the incremental cost of new vehicles that use lower-carbon fuels vs standard diesel trucks. Applicants are required to commit to using 40% renewable or non-fossil fuels until March 2027 (or later).
Eligible costs include project-related professional services and capital expenses. Applications must include a fleet energy assessment that recommends the proposed activities. Companies operating in the softwood lumber industry and related vertically-integrated businesses are ineligible for support. The deadline to apply is November 16, 2023.
**Note that the program does not offer funding towards the purchase of zero-emission vehicles, as these fall under the Incentives for Medium- and Heavy-Duty Zero-Emission Vehicles Program (iMHZEV). **
