Infrastructure Incentives

Status: Application Period is currently CLOSED for infrastructure projects.

 


Background

The Sac Metro Air District can help fund alternative fueling and charging infrastructure via the Carl Moyer Program and Community Air Protection Incentive Program. Infrastructure incentives are for natural gas and hydrogen fueling stations and battery electric vehicle charging stations.  


Funding is now closed due to oversubscription

  • Criteria listed below are used to assist in application selection when funds are available. 
  • Disadvantaged Communities are encouraged with a priority in communities identified under our AB 617 Community Air Protection Program.
  • Most projects will be approved on a first-come, first-served basis so we encourage applicants to begin the process immediately. 
  • All charging and fueling station applications may be considered "Public Works Projects" under California Labor Code.  Applicants are responsible to report and comply with all applicable regulations. 

Public Infrastructure

Public access infrastructure will only be accepted if the applicant has selected the project through a competitive bid process with at least three (3) respondents.

Private Infrastructure

 Private infrastructure applications will be accepted without a bid requirement. 

 

Step 1: Before Applying, contact your local utility company!

Your local Utility Company may have additional funding that can be stacked with our programs. All funding amounts cannot exceed the cost of the infrastructure. Other limitations may apply and will be evaluated during the application review process.

1 Sensitive receptor include schools, hospitals, days care centers, and such other locations as the air districts or CARB may determine ((H&SC § 42705.5(a)(5)). 

2 Projects that include Solar/Wind Power systems must be capable of supplying at least 50% of the estimated electricity output of the EVSE. Applicants that include on site renewable generation must provide a methodology for estimating total energy provided for vehicle charging from the system to determine the generation meets the 50% requirement. Projects not connected to the electrical grid will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and may not be eligible for funding.  

3 Funding priority is given to projects operating and/or registered in a disadvantaged community as identified by CalEnvrionScreen 3.0  and the designated Community Air Protection Air Monitoring Community.
