Financing Committee Call on Financing Medium-and Heavy-Duty Alternative Fueled and Electric Vehicles

March 24, 2021, 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET

On March 24, 2021 at 3:00 pm ET, NASEO’s Financing Committee will host a discussion with experts on the topic of financing models for medium and heavy duty vehicle fleets and infrastructure. While states continue to pursue the electrification of lightduty vehicles, there still many barriers to and questions about financing medium and heavy duty fleets as those vehicles convert from diesel to alternative fuels. This session will explore barriers to financing alternative-fueled medium and heavy duty vehicles and associated infrastructure, as well as present financing models that can help state, local governments and businesses convert their fleets to alternative fuels. We encourage you to come prepared with questions, thoughts, and comments for speakers.
