The CVP program is intended to support the piloting of unique or large deployments of commercial zero-emission vehicles, including medium- and heavy-duty on-road vehicles (weight class 3 through 8), as well as rail, marine, aircraft and off-road equipment. The SUVI program is designed to support the adoption of commercial ZEVs in a variety of applications including motorcycles, low-speed vehicles, electric cargo bicycles (cargo e-bikes), utility vehicles, and a variety of medium- and heavy-duty vehicles, referred to as specialty-use vehicles. For more information on this announcement, please refer to the news release.
The CVP program is funded through the B.C. Ministry of Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation and is administered by MNP LLP. The complementary SUVI program is administered by Fraser Basin Council. For more information on both programs please visit cvpbc.ca and pluginbc.ca/suvi.
In an effort to promote this new funding opportunity to our target audience, we are requesting your support with sharing information on both programs through an email to your members, an announcement on your social media accounts, a section in an upcoming newsletter or a mention on your website. Please let us know if you are able to support us with our outreach efforts. You will find a draft email to distribute to your members attached.
