Governor Brown Signs Bill Extending Alternative Transportation Program

Clean transportation and fuel projects in California just got the green light for continued funding, thanks to legislation recently signed into law by Governor Brown.

Assembly Bill 8 (Perea) allows the Energy Commission's Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology (ARFVT) Program to continue investing in innovative transportation and fuel technologies that help the state meet its energy, clean air, and climate-change goals. The bill extends the program to January 1, 2024, adding as much as $800 million for future investments in low-carbon fuels and vehicle technologies.
