CEC has $20.0 million dollars in grant funds for projects that will support the deployment of fueling infrastructure for medium- and heavy-duty (MD/HD) zero-emission transit bus fleets. The purpose of this solicitation is to fund the electric vehicle (EV) charging or hydrogen refueling infrastructure needed to support the large-scale conversion of transit bus fleets to zero-emission vehicles (ZEVs) at multiple transit agencies serving diverse geographic regions and populations.
Grant Management Associates knows this funding well. Feel free to contact us for grant writing assistance.
CEC funding under this solicitation must be utilized for new or upgrades to existing charging or refueling infrastructure to support battery electric or hydrogen fuel cell transit buses.
EV Charging. EV infrastructure projects must include deployment of chargers for eligible vehicles and may include funding for panels, conduit, and wiring at the facility level, as well as upgrades to distribution infrastructure including meters and transformers, to support current and future deployment of electric transit vehicles. Projects may also include deployment of renewable distributed energy resources (DER) for supplying power to EV chargers provided the DER is permanently installed on site. Transportable DER or DER not used to power EV chargers or the onsite production of hydrogen are not eligible.
Hydrogen Refueling. Hydrogen infrastructure is limited to private-access stations only.
