Accelerating the Adoption of Electric Vehicles: Advance Crediting

Many Oregon companies with fleets are participating in pilot programs where they have bought a single electric vehicle – but how do we get that to turn into 10 or 100 or the entire fleet? In the current Clean Fuels Program, credits are generated on a quarterly basis when the fleet reports the amount of electricity used to power its vehicles. On an individual vehicle level, the rate of credit generation may seem to be a little drop in a very large bucket. To accelerate that pace, the Clean Fuels Program has created a new provision that allows eligible fleets to generate credits in advance of when they would normally be generated - up to six years' worth - once the vehicle is put into service. This is called advance crediting.
