Electrification Incentives & Rebates for Refrigerated Fleets

Take advantage of electric reefer rebates and incentives
Find out how you can save up to 40% on Thermo King electric reefer units for your refrigerate fleet

Nationally and at the state level, investments are being made to help businesses offset the cost of purchasing zero-emissions equipment. For example, in California, the e1000 is the only qualifying TRU for Class 5 – 7 trucks for the Clean Off-Road Equipment Voucher Incentive Project (CORE), which can help offset the e1000 reefer purchase price by up to 40%. The list below provides information on current grants, rebates, tax credits and vouchers available to help make your refrigerated fleet transition to electrification more affordable.
