Across the nation, fleets of all vocations are reliably operating tens of thousands of natural gas and electric vehicles in their daily routes. If you would like to hear from a fleet manager, we have interviews and case studies from multiple commercial vehicle fleet operators who are reducing costs and emissions with alternative fuel vehicles. We can introduce you to other fleet operators that are having great success already.
Most grants do require scrappage, but a few offer smaller amounts of funding for fleet expansion.
While there are many routes to participating in grants, we encourage truck and fleet operators to contact Valley Fleet Support to discuss which grants fit your fleet the best. The money is available, and we are happy to help identify the best program and start the application.
