West Coast Electric Fleets is an initiative of the Pacific Coast Collaborative (PCC), a joint initiative of California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia to accelerate a vibrant, low-carbon economy on the West Coast. On October 28, 2013, the Governors and Premier of the PCC jurisdictions announced the Pacific Coast Action Plan on Climate and Energy. A key element of the action plan was to “take actions to expand the use of zero-emission vehicles, aiming for 10 percent of new vehicle purchases in public and private fleets by 2016.” As a component of the PCC’s initiative to reach this goal, the PCC launched West Coast Electric Fleets Initiative and developed this toolkit for public and private fleet managers to quickly assess opportunities for ZEVs and access useful incentives and resources to assist with procurement. The initial goal has now expanded to include fleets that aim for more than 10 percent and establish a new target year of 2020. The resources on this site are intended to help fleet managers:

  • Quickly assess current fleet composition and use to identify opportunities for ZEVs
  • Calculate and compare costs of incorporating ZEVs into fleets, and access information about available incentives and applicable policies
  • Access implementation resources

In short, this site is intended to help “demystify” ZEVs and give managers of light-duty, medium-duty, and heavy-duty fleets confidence that all major issues have been considered. To suggest additional tools and resources that would be useful to fleet managers, or to provide feedback on what you see here, fill in the contact form below. This site and complementary resources for fleet managers will be developed and refined over time based on your input.
