Medium- and Heavy-Duty Fleet Make-Ready Pilot Program

The Medium- and Heavy-Duty Pilot Program  (MHDPP) is designed to reduce diesel emissions by encouraging the conversion of medium- and heavy-duty fleets to electric vehicles (EVs) in the utilities’ service territories. The Pilot Program focuses particularly on disadvantaged communities (DACs) and offers incentives to mitigate the cost of developing EV charging capacity for qualifying medium- and heavy-duty fleets. The incentives cover up to 90% of the utility-side make-ready costs.

Eligibility: New York Truck Voucher Incentive / New York City Clean Trucks Program participation: To qualify for the Pilot Program incentives, fleet owners or managers must receive support, through either the New York Truck Voucher Incentive Program or the New York City Clean Trucks Program. Participation in either of these programs demonstrates that the Pilot Program applicant is replacing an older, polluting diesel truck with a clean vehicle technology that dramatically reduces or eliminates tailpipe pollution. Documentation of participation in the Voucher Incentive Program or Clean Truck Program must be provided.
