Electrification Incentives & Rebates for Refrigerated Fleets

Take Advantage of Electric Reefer Rebates and Incentives

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.
