The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) announced it is launching a new electric truck buyer incentive program aimed at reducing diesel fuel consumption within the state.
 
The Commercial Electric Truck Incentive Program (CETIP) will be offered in the form of $20,000 vouchers per eligible, all-electric vehicle over 10,000 pounds, regardless of manufacturer. The vouchers will be available to qualified purchasers to encourage mass adoption and support fleet conversion from diesel to electricity throughout Oregon.

ODOT said that by replacing the average diesel truck of this size with a zero emission alternative, more than a half million gallons of diesel fuel will be saved annually.
