3 Monterey Bay Plugin Electric Vehicle (PEV) Fleet Plan Fall 2013 Scott Roseman owner of New Leaf Community Market grocery store next to his plugin hybrid electric Ford C- Max Energi. 1. Introduction: Overview Increasing the number of plugin electric fleet vehicles in the Monterey Bay region offers many benefits for overall PEV adoption but also poises significant challenges. PEV fleet incorporation gives this new, clean and zero emission tailpipe transportation technology good community exposure, a large number of drivers a first hand PEV driving experience, and allows government to be a leader in climate solutions. Unfortunately many public agencies are still struggling with diminishing revenue to cover basic operational costs such as police, fire, road repair and other services. Private sector fleets in the Monterey Bay are generally smaller therefore lacking the larger capital of bigger companies who are better positioned to make long term investments. The transition to PEVs in both public and private Monterey Bay region fleets is promising but will take time. The adoption of PEVs into local public and private fleets will be incremental and could depend on external factors such as lower PEV sticker prices, reduced PEV charging station equipment cost, increased battery range and a wider offering of PEV vehicle types. Monterey Bay public and private agencies/businesses can take steps to assure PEV fleet adoption including bulk purchases to reduce purchase costs, implement strong green fleet purchasing and climate action policies, provide non- financial incentives such as significant promotion and recognition of PEV fleet leaders, preferential parking and other perks. Strong leadership is a key to overcoming short- term barriers that retard long term environmental, economic and health benefits. Government vehicle fleets account for the largest sector of fleets in the country, with state and local governments accounting for over 4.1 million cars and trucks 3

4 alone. The largest fleets in Monterey Bay fleets are generally public, consisting of local jurisdictions, regional, state, and federal agencies, as well as K- 12 schools, community and state colleges/universities. Public agency fleet vehicle stock is made up of a large percentage of light duty vehicles suitable for replacement by plugin battery and hybrid electric vehicles. The greatest obstacle facing the transition of public agency fleets to more energy efficient and zero tailpipe emission vehicles is the upfront cost of vehicle and charging equipment purchase even though total cost of ownership favors plugin electric vehicles which have lower fueling, maintenance and repair costs. Most, if not all, public agencies are financially constrained and therefore are reducing or delaying new fleet purchases. The region s private sector main industries are agriculture, construction, tourism, medical care providers, and retail. Agriculture and construction fleets are mostly compromised of medium and heavy- duty vehicles making them incompatible with the current PEV passenger vehicle offerings. There are still opportunities to incorporate PEVs into the private sector, as companies are eager to win costumers through green initiatives in a very environmentally aware regional market. Even with significant economic limitations to transition to a greater number of PEV s in local fleets there are several regional exemplary PEV fleet leaders. These leaders include public agencies, non- profits and rental car entities who have successfully incorporated PEVs into their fleets. These companies have not only gained recognition for their environmental sustainability but also saved on fueling and maintenance costs with cleaner cars that meet their fleet driving needs. Many local public agencies have taken advantage of California Energy Commission and regional Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District grant funding to purchase and install level 1 and 2 chargers. There are currently over 70 EVSE installed throughout the Monterey Bay, some of which are suitable for fleet PEV charging. This fairly extensive charging network provides some level of assurance that PEV fleet vehicles will be able to charge on trips within the region. 4

5 This Plugshare.com EVSE location map shows an overview of chargers located in Monterey and San Benito County. There are some 70 public EVSEs in the Monterey Bay tri- county area. Some of these charge stations are located at worksite therefore well situated for fleet charging. The County of Santa Cruz has installed three dual level1/2 chargers at three of their facilities, the City of Salinas has taken advantage of two different grant sources to install 3 chargers near county facilities, UCSC recently installed 4 EVSE at a central parking garage, and the City of Santa Cruz installed solar carport panels with EVSE ready conduit as they plan to install a charger for employee and fleet use. Businesses such as the Central California Alliance for Health Care installed four EVSE at their Santa Cruz and Monterey county offices. These are a few examples of public and private entities who are well positioned to incorporate PEVs into their fleets based on EVSE infrastructure. The Fleet section of the Monterey Bay PEV Readiness Plan provides an overview of the current fleet landscape, PEV Fleet earlier adopters, incentives and plans to accelerate PEV adoption into local fleets. 2. Monterey Bay Fleet overview: Monterey Bay fleet composition is best understood by looking at several large fleet operators who epitomize the region s fleet make- up. The region is made up of 21 local jurisdictions with Monterey County being the largest local government agency with some 1,570 fleet vehicles. Almost a third, 450 vehicles, of their public fleet consists of passenger vehicles suitable for replacement by the current offering of PEV sedans and hatchbacks. Monterey County fleet management calculates that 80% of their fleet passenger cars are driven less than 100 miles per day therefore within the range of most plugin electric cars. But there are no plugin electric vehicles in the County s fleet as of yet, due to lack of charging stations, which costs 5

6 some $7,000 to $10,000 in equipment and installation as well as plugin cars are $10,000 to $15,000 more costly to purchase than comparable ICE cars. Monterey County government has a Climate Friendly Purchasing Policy, which states: Promote Renewable Energy and Low Carbon Fuels. It is the policy of the County, if applicable, practicable, and economically feasible, to purchase: a. Fuel efficient and alternative fuel vehicles But unfortunately, the fleet managers who are actively tracking and seeking out PEV fleet information are still unable to make a case for PEV purchase due to the upfront cost. The County replaces some 20 vehicles a year so ideally they could be buying approximately seven PEVs a year based on the percentage of passenger cars in their current fleet. Another large fleet operator in the Monterey Bay region is the University of California at Santa Cruz (UCSC), which, has 465 vehicles serving a variety of uses. The UCSC fleet manager identified about 55 cars that would be suitable for PEV replacement. UCSC also has some 50 Neighborhood Electric Vehicles (NEV) that make short inter- campus trips. Their experience with the NEVs has provided fleet management with some understanding of electric vehicle charging, maintenance and repair. The NEVs are recharged from strategically placed 110 volt outlets which could be suitable for limited PEV charging. The University cites upfront cost as a factor for not incorporating plugins into their fleet as well as power upgrade cost as many of the parking facilitates are a considerable distance from electrical power sources. The University recently spent over $40,000 for a garage power upgrade to accommodate installation of six EV chargers. The idyllic campus is spread out over 2,000 acres making electric infrastructure upgrades expensive. Even with a strong climate action plan, policy and staffing UCSC has yet to incorporated PEVs into their fleet. The examples of the County of Monterey and UCSC illustrate a willingness and interest in PEV fleet adoption, which could see PEV incorporation in the near future if economic barriers are reduced. 3. PEV Fleet Early Adopters: Monterey Bay does have several businesses/agencies who have successfully incorporated plugin vehicles into their fleets. These exemplary leaders provide a roadmap for other regional entities to learn from, follow and hopefully emulate. These earlier adopters have made an investment in cleaner transportation therefore 6

7 reducing their carbon emissions, reducing/stabilizing fueling cost while receiving favorable community recognition and gaining new customers. 3A. The Central California Alliance for Health The Central California Alliance for Health is a non- profit that provides medical insurance and prevention care resources to low- income residents of Santa Cruz and Monterey County. This unique health care- provider has staff who travel throughout the region to meet with clients and partner agencies. The Alliance took the initiative to green their regional fleet as they took advantage of favorable leasing terms and California Energy Commission funded EVSE installation incentives to incorporate two 2012 Nissan Leaf plugin cars into their fleet as well as installing four EV charging stations at their two offices. The Alliance Director of Human Resource had this to say about the two Leafs, the fact that we are implementing creative ways to reduce emissions, promote an environmentally mindset in our staff, and also the fact we re engaging our community. We ve installed several electric vehicle recharging stations at our office here in Scotts Valley, which are free for public use. Central California Alliance for Health purchased two Nissan Leaf. 7

8 The Alliance estimates with an average of 15,000 miles per year of battery only driving they are saving $2,430 annually from avoided mileage re- imbursement with an annual lease of only $2,892 and with a 50% reduction in fueling cost. The Alliance installed three EVSE at their Scotts Valley office and one at their Salinas office to support charging for their Leaf plugin cars and for other PEV drivers. Each office has a Leaf for staff inter- regional travel and local errands. Staff are gradually getting used to the plugin Leafs as fewer than expected trips are being made with the electric car from the frequently staff traveled route between the Scotts Valley and Salinas office which is 80 miles round trip. 3B. San Benito County Government San Benito County purchased a 2013 Ford EV Focus with funding from the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control s AB2766 grant program. San Benito County is the first public agency to receive AB2766 funds to purchase an electric vehicle. The plugin Ford Focus purchase has received favorable recognition on the several regional websites. County has reduced fuel cost as the vehicle is utilized for a variety of agency transportation needs. San Benito County Supervisor Jerry Muenzer and Adam Goldstone, San Benito County Public Works Capital Projects Manager in front of the County s Ford EV Focus. 3C. City of Santa Cruz Government The City of Santa Cruz with some 120 light duty vehicles in their municipal fleet of 400 vehicles/equipment are in the final process to deploy two Nissan Leafs. City took advantage of a favorable 3- year lease green their fleet as they will sell two older Ford Taurus with an MPG of 22 and installing EV chargers powered by their new solar carports. The City s Operational Manager said the Leaf lease pencils out with lower fueling and maintenance costs. The City of Santa Cruz plans to incorporate the plugins before the end of 2013 and evaluate adding more plugins as they replace a couple of fleet cars each year. 3D. PEV Rental and Car Share: Enterprise and Getaround 8

9 Monterey Bay Plugin Electric Vehicle (PEV) Fleet Plan Fall 2013 An area of particular PEV fleet integration success has occurred in rental fleets. Both Enterprise and Hertz rental car companies have plugin electric vehicles in their Santa Cruz fleets. Enterprise has had the greatest success as they took advantage of a Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution Control District AB2766 funded PEV Access and Public Education program that provides technical and promotional assistance to rental companies with PEVs. The non- profit Ecology Action, PEV Access and Education program implementer, approached Enterprise to add PEV s to their Santa Cruz rental fleet as part of the program effort to give local drivers access to PEV so they can have an extended test drive of this new, green technology. In the earlier spring of 2013 Enterprise installed a level 2 EV charger at their downtown Santa Cruz rental office. They then deployed two 2013 Nissan plugin Leaf into their rental fleet. Ecology Action provided a basic, how- to Leaf guide for Enterprise customers unfamiliar with the operation of an all- electric Leaf. The pictorial guide included information on starting, driving and shutting off the Leaf as well as how to find and operate charging stations. To further assist Leaf rental drivers, Ecology Action provided Chargepoint activated RFID cards to initiate charge sessions at the popular Chargepoint chargers through the Monterey and San Francisco Bay area. 9

10 With enthusiastic support from the Enterprise branch manager the two Leaf s where booked on a regular basis. This early PEV rental success prompted Enterprise to enter two more Leaf s into their Santa Cruz fleet. The four Leafs continue to be popular with local rental car customers as the plugins are utilized at a rate of 90% or better therefore they are rarely sitting at the office. Enterprise customers often rent the Leafs for a few weeks through accident/repair insurance coverage. Those renting the Leaf are interested in seeing if the plugin cars will meet their driving needs therefore letting the customer determine if PEV ownership would work for them. Also customers are drawn to the environmental and economic benefits of renting a Leaf as they aren t producing tailpipe emissions, Enterprise doesn t require them to fill up the battery charge and most public EVSE s are free to use. Enterprise Rent- a- Car received favorable media coverage when they added plugin Nissan Leafs into their Santa Cruz rental fleet. Enterprise has also received favorable media coverage from the local press and via the Monterey Bay Electric Vehicle Alliance s social media outreach efforts. The interest and high utilization of the Santa Cruz Enterprise Leaf s fulfill a corporate goal for many rental companies to take green and carbon reduction measures. Getaround, a peer- to- peer car share system, has incorporated plugins into their fleets as car owners interested in trying something different than traditional car ownership are also likely to own a trendsetting, innovative plugin car. This online person- to- person car sharing is similar to the ever popular vacation rental websites such as Vacation Rental By Owner but instead of renting your home for short term stays, individuals are renting their cars. Getaround.com lists several plugin electric 10

11 cars in the Monterey Bay region therefore giving individuals access to a fleet of plugin cars. These varied examples of local fleets who are early PEV adopters illustrates how plugin vehicles can be incorporated into fleets regardless of upfront costs. These leaders also serve as resources for other private and public fleet staff to emulate and guide them to a greener and more sustainable fleet. 4. Outreach to Fleet Managers The efforts of several public state, regional and local agencies, non- profits, alliances, organized labor and businesses have lead the way for PEV adoption in the Monterey Bay region. Much of the PEV advancement has been lead by the Monterey Bay Electric Vehicle Alliance (MBEVA), a grassroots public- private partnership comprised of diverse stakeholders in the tri- county region of Monterey, San Benito, and Santa Cruz Counties whose overall mission is to promote rapid adoption of plug- in electric vehicles. 4A. MBEVA Presentations MBEVA has hosted regular plugin electric presentation given by a wide spectrum of PEV experts covering new vehicle technology and releases, charging station types and technology, policy and legislative, grant funds and incentives, and best practices for advancing PEVs. MBEVA has promoted these ongoing presentations to stakeholders throughout the region including fleet managers. Representatives from large fleet holdings have attended the MBEVA meeting therefore keeping informed on current PEV advances. 4B. MBEVA Website MBEVA also maintains a regional PEV clearinghouse and information website (mbeva.org) with a specific fleet manager section. These fleet specific webpages provide resources on types of PEV s available, PEV fleet best practice handbooks, funding and incentives, and EV charging station information. The website also highlights PEV fleet leaders and lists other PEV workshops relevant to fleet operations. 4C. MBUAPCD Funded Outreach Ecology Action in collaboration with MBEVA has reached out to fleet managers through the MBUAPCD funded PEV Access and Education program. EA has worked closely with rental car, private and public fleet managers to support and promotion their PEV integration efforts. Ecology Action will host two PEV workshops specifically designed for fleet managers through the PEV Access and Education program. These workshops will provide fleet managers an opportunity to learn from other regional fleet staff who have incorporated PEVs into their fleets as well as access the latest on grant funding and bulk fleet purchase opportunities. 11

12 The MBEVA.ORG website provides fleet manager specific PEV resource information. 4D. MBEVA enewsetter Ecology Action staff in junction with MBEVA leadership also produces and distributes a monthly enewsletter to some 400 regional stakeholders including fleet staff and government officials. These newsletters provide information on upcoming PEV workshops, resources and news. 12

13 Headline of MBEVA enewsletter distributed by to some 400 regional PEV stakeholders including fleet managers. Outreach to fleet managers is conducted through various venues including newsletter updates, targeted website resources, workshops, and general marketing. Several managers of large fleets are engaged in regional PEV efforts therefore keeping informed and updated on PEV developments in this new and ever changing field. 5. Fleet PEV Incentives and Opportunities The Monterey Bay region is well positioned for increased PEV fleet adoption with several opportunities and incentives available to fleet staff and departments. These opportunities stem from the regions investment and work to advance PEVs, local leadership and advocacy from a variety of key stakeholders and the region s proximity to the San Francisco bay area. 13

14 5A. SF Bay Proximity and Partnership As the San Francisco bay area and most notably the peninsula and south bay, establish itself as a national leader in PEV adoption, Monterey Bay is an important extension in this advancement. San Francisco bay area workers, visitors and residents constitute a significant percentage of Monterey Bay drivers. Coordination between the two regions include the Monterey Bay s inclusion in the Bay Area Air Quality Management District s DOE funded PEV Plan, Monterey Bay representation on the San Francisco Bay Area PEV Strategic Council, and informal information sharing. The public agency funded Local Government EV Fleet Demonstration Project will deploy 90 plugin cars to local jurisdictions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area therefore demonstrating to neighboring Monterey Bay agencies how they can successfully incorporate PEVs into their fleets. 5B. Greater Region Bulk Purchases A unique collaboration of four local municipalities, a car manufacturer, a marketing company, national fleet sales company and a climate collaborative partnership group negotiated the lease of 50 plugin Mitsubishi i- MIEV cars for fleet use. This deal eliminated all upfront costs for the 4 San Francisco Bay area local governments and provided over one year of free monthly leasing. This deal was heralded by the Bay Area Climate Collaborative (BACC), who helped broker the deal, as the largest PEV fleet purchase in the nation. BACC leadership explained the favorable terms of the lease deal to Monterey Bay PEV stakeholders who where invited to recruit local public fleet staff to take advantage of another upcoming lease agreement. These bulk PEV leasing agreements provide Monterey Bay jurisdictions with the opportunity to deploy PEVs into their fleets with minimal upfront costs. 4C. MBUAPCD Funding Closer to home the Monterey Bay Unified Air Pollution District has taken several steps to actively support PEV fleet adoption including providing AB2766 funding for San Benito County to purchase a Ford EV Focus for general fleet travel and funding some of the first public charging stations in the region. The annual MBUAPCD funding source allows local fleet managers and government agencies to apply for up to $200,000 to reduce vehicle emission through such strategies as replacing fuel inefficient fleet cars with zero tailpipe emission plugin vehicles. The AB2766 grant process is highly competitive and requires the applicants to replace vehicles with high annual mileage as applications are scored on vehicle pollutants emission reduction. So it is not good enough to just add a clean vehicle into a fleet, it must also replace a frequently driven and high polluting vehicle. 14

15 5D. State Fleet Purchase Contracts Pubic agencies have access to state negotiated favorable fleet vehicle purchase prices through the California Department of General Services (DGS). DGS maintains Master Vehicle Contracts that cities and counties can use to purchase fuel efficient and alternative fuel vehicles at lower prices than might otherwise be available to them. DGS develops specifications for different types or classes of vehicles (such as hybrid sedans) and then awards contracts to specific dealerships for a single model in each class. Local agencies can order vehicles directly from those dealerships under the DGS master vehicle contracts. DGS s negotiated a 2013 California state contract for the 2013 Ford Focus Electric. The 2013 Focus Electric contract provides for a low cost prepaid 36 month/31.5k mile lease (net of the $7,500 tax credit) prior to the $2,500 CVRP rebate that local government agencies can piggyback on. 5E. State Incentives/Rebates Fleet purchasers/managers can also take advantage of these state financial incentives to help reduce the purchase price of a plugin vehicle. Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Purchase Vouchers: Through the Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), the California Air Resources Board provides vouchers to eligible fleets to reduce the incremental cost of qualified medium- and heavy- duty HEVs and ZEVs at the time of purchase. Vouchers are available on a first- come, first- served basis and range from $6,000 to $45,000. Only fleets that operate vehicles in California are eligible. Refer to the HVIP website for a list of qualified vehicles and other requirements. Plug- In Hybrid and Zero Emission Light- Duty Vehicle Rebates: The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) offers rebates for the purchase or lease of qualified vehicles. The rebates offer up to $2,500 for light- duty zero emission and plug- in hybrid vehicles that the California Air Resources Board (ARB) has approved or certified. The rebates are available on a first- come, first- served basis to individuals, business owners, and government entities in California that purchase or lease new eligible vehicles. Manufacturers must apply to ARB to have their vehicles included in CVRP. Refer to the CVRP website for a list of eligible vehicles and other requirements. ARB determines annual funding amounts for CVRP, which is expected to be effective through These are some of the incentives and opportunities available to public agencies and private companies in the Monterey Bay to assist with incorporating plugin vehicles into their respective fleets. As the plugin vehicle market continues to mature there will be more opportunities and reasons for fleet purchases of these zero emission tailpipe and low maintenance cost vehicles. 15

16 6. Measures to accelerate PEV fleet adoption Monterey Bay transportation, climate solution, and government cost saving stakeholders have taken meaningful steps to increase PEV fleet purchases as illustrated in this report. There are further measures that can accelerate plugin car fleet adoption. These measures include: PEV Readiness Measures to Accelerate PEV fleet Adoption Accelerating PEV Readiness and PEV Deployment Measures M1. Enact climate solution, green fleet purchasing, and general local government policies to advance PEV adoptions in local fleets Next Steps 1A. Regional local governments adopt climate solution mandates on green fleet procurement. 1B. Regional local governments adopt policies/ordinances providing preferred EV parking locations, free charging, and low or no cost parking among favored EV treatment. 1C. Solicit strong local government leadership to send a clear directive to fleet purchasing and management staff that incorporating PEVs in fleets is a priority. 1D. Encourage public agencies to adopt formal goals for PEV fleet acquisitions (e.g., 50% of fleet vehicles will be PEVs by 2025) M2. Coordinate bulk PEV fleet purchases 2A. Coordinate bulk PEV fleet purchases through already established regional PEV collaborations such as the Monterey Bay Electric Vehicle Alliance (MBEVA) and the Monterey Bay PEV Coordinating Council. 2B. Secure ongoing funding for sufficient staff support to for these key alliances. 2C. Coordinate with SF Bay agencies to take advantage of larger multi- entity fleet purchase arrangements. R.4. Increased and continued promotion and marketing of PEV fleet benefits 4A.

California Laws and Incentives for Fleet Purchaser/Manager The list below contains summaries of all California laws and incentives related to Fleet Purchaser/Manager. State Incentives Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) and Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Purchase Vouchers Through the Hybrid Truck and Bus Voucher Incentive Project (HVIP), the California Air Resources Board provides vouchers to eligible fleets to reduce the incremental cost of qualified medium- and heavy- duty HEVs and ZEVs at the time of purchase. Vouchers are available on a first- come, first- served basis and range from $6,000 to $45,000. Only fleets that operate vehicles in California are eligible. Refer to the HVIP website for a list of qualified vehicles and other requirements. Plug- In Hybrid and Zero Emission Light- Duty Vehicle Rebates The Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) offers rebates for the purchase or lease of qualified vehicles. The rebates offer up to $2,500 for light- duty zero emission and plug- in hybrid vehicles that the California Air Resources Board (ARB) has approved or certified. The rebates are available on a first- come, first- served basis to individuals, business owners, and government entities in California that purchase or lease new eligible vehicles. Manufacturers must apply to ARB to have their vehicles included in CVRP. Refer to the CVRP website for a list of eligible vehicles and other 19

20 requirements. ARB determines annual funding amounts for CVRP, which is expected to be effective through The California Department of General Services (DGS) maintains Master Vehicle Contracts that cities and counties can use to purchase fuel efficient and alternative fuel vehicles at lower prices than might otherwise be available to them. DGS develops specifications for different types or classes of vehicles (such as hybrid sedans) and then awards contracts to specific dealerships for a single model in each class. DGS awards two contracts for each class of vehicles, one specifying delivery of vehicles to any agency within Sacramento County, and the other specifying delivery to any agency within Los Angeles County, in order to offer northern and southern California delivery opportunities. Local agencies can order vehicles directly from those dealerships under the DGS master vehicle contracts. Local agencies outside Sacramento or Los Angeles counties can negotiate delivery terms with the dealership. While DGS Master Vehicle Contracts only apply to the selected dealerships, the contract specifications and pricing are publicly available on the DGS Web site. Cities and counties may use these publicly available resources as a starting point for exploring purchasing opportunities through local dealers. Information about how to use DGS Master Vehicle Contracts is available at: Purchasing Fuel- Efficient and Alternative- Fuel Vehicles through the California Department of General Services.
