The third round of the California Energy Commission’s Energy Infrastructure Incentives for Zero-Emission Commercial Vehicles (EnergIIZE) Electric Vehicle Fast Track funding opportunity will open on Feb. 7.

It’s expected to be fully subscribed within minutes of opening at 9 a.m. Pacific Time, as happened during the first two rounds, “demonstrating the high demand for EV charging infrastructure among electric vehicle fleet owners and operators,” according to CALSTART.

EV Fast Track, one of four funding lanes offered by EnergIIZE, targets fleets with pre-existing commercial battery-electric vehicle commitments: those fleets that already have procured zero-emission battery-electric vehicles or who have an active EV purchase order.

Fast Truck funds cover 50% of eligible equipment and software costs, up to $500,000 per project. Applicants could receive up to 75%, not exceeding $750,000 per project, if they qualify for EV Jump Start equity criteria, which is intended for fleets in disadvantaged or low-income communities.

Eligible equipment includes Level 2 electric vehicle supply equipment, direct current fast-charge EVSE, management software, switchgears, electric panel upgrades, wiring and conduit, and meters.

Applicants will submit through the Incentive Processing Center at the designated start time.

"Funds offered through this round of EV Fast Track are more than double what they were in 2023, and we expect continued high demand," said Alyssa Haerle, CALSTART's director of infrastructure incentive administration. "Interested fleet owners and operators should focus on providing a timely and complete application, and can familiarize themselves with the application process ahead of the lane opening by navigating around the Sandbox this week."
