‘Drive Clean’ aims to incentivize use of electrics and HOV lanes

By From page A1 | April 07, 2014

Federal, state and local governments are putting up money as incentives for residents to buy and drive “zero or ultra-low emission vehicles.” El Dorado County’s Board of Supervisors approved a package of grant-based clean air projects including a Drive Clean Incentive program during its April 1 meeting. Locally, the El Dorado County Air Quality Management District developed a proposal for participating in the state’s Drive Clean Incentive program with a $200,000 grant from the state’s AB 2766 funds to pay for the incentives. AB 2766 moneys are collected as “subvention funds” from motor vehicle license fees for the purpose of reducing emissions. Subvention funds are simply funds that are distributed to an individual or entity by a governmental or other organization.
