Trenton, N.J.—New Jersey Board of Public Utilities President Joseph L. Fiordaliso joined Paterson Mayor Andre Sayegh for their Earth Day celebration by announcing the award of more than $200,000 in grants to Paterson toward the cost of electric vehicles for the municipality.  Paterson was one of 15 government entities and one university receiving grants towards the cost of electric vehicles.   


“The Clean Fleet Program is a critical investment in our clean energy future and an important tool to encourage the use of electric vehicles by state and local government entities,” said New Jersey Board of Public Utilities President Joseph L. Fiordaliso. “We know that reducing our carbon emissions is the key to cleaner air and healthier communities, and I’m thrilled we can help cities like Paterson lead by example by electrifying their vehicle fleets to improve the quality of life for the residents of this community.”

New Jersey’s Clean Fleet program provides grants to state and local government entities toward the purchase of battery electric vehicles and fleet and public EV charging stations. In June of last year New Jersey’s Clean Energy Program™ (NJCEP) allocated a total of $1 million for Fiscal Year 2022 for local government EV adoption and has awarded nearly $400,000 in grants for 57 electric vehicles and 24 chargers through the Clean Fleet Program. Clean Fleet is one of many State programs designed to encourage the use of electric vehicles statewide to reduce emissions and help us reach Governor Murphy’s goal of 100 percent clean energy by 2050. Applications are approved on a rolling basis and the deadline to apply is May 16, 2022.
