The state of Colorado wants to give away $7 million to businesses, local governments, nonprofits and other entities that want to electrify their vehicle fleets. The Colorado Energy Office is now accepting applications for its Fleet-ZERO grant program. It’s meant to complement another grant program for clean fleet vehicles.
Fleet vehicles tend to be on the road a lot. They account for less than 10 percent of vehicles on the road in Colorado but are responsible for 22 percent of road-based greenhouse gas emissions. That means converting fleets can have an outsized impact on pollution reduction, Matt Lerman, infrastructure program manager at the Colorado Energy Office stated.
