  13. 13. Why Vouchers over Tax Credits andOther Options?• Change economics at point of purchase,effectively reducing purchase price• All fleets can take advantage– Includes tax-exempt fleets– Directly impacts budget for fleet manager• Simple and easy to understand!• Industry surveys and studies confirm vouchersare best purchase incentive option
  14. 14. The New Model and Opportunity• CMAQ Funds can be used in a voucherprogram – makes it easier to start (do notneed own funds)• NY, Chicago and Oregon using this approach• They have now set the “template”• Other regions (cities/states in some cases)can/should be encouraged to make use of thisstructure
  15. 15. Making the Case• New CALSTART whitepaper outlines value ofvouchers• Also provides case study offirst voucher state; newvoucher regions starting;identifies possible federalfunds• Outlines framework ofnational incentive networkthat could be made up ofregional voucher programs
  16. 16. Some Potential Areas for ExpandedIncentives?= New PotentialVoucher Regions
  17. 17. Proposed CALSTART Effort• Focus on 5-7 key states in absence of fed leadership.Help them understand/adopt new voucher model• Push for fuel/technology neutral approach to driveemissions reductions and efficiency• Practical, solution-oriented approach scales existingprograms and leverages existing funds• No federal legislation needed – can tap existing funds ifwe train the states• Work with coalition of industry
