Alternative Fuel Vehicle Program

The Antelope Valley Air Quality Management District's (AVAQMD) Alternative Fuel Vehicle Incentive Program has realized tremendous growth in the past few years.  Emissions from vehicles are the largest contributor to locally generated air pollution in the Antelope Valley.  The AVAQMD's Governing Board has made it a priority to provide local residents various opportunities to convert from their existing, higher emitting vehicles to newer, cleaner vehicles.

As a result of the impressive success of this program the Governing Board of the AVAQMD has decided to continue the program.  As of June 1, 2014 a $1,000 AFV incentive is offered to local residents within the AVAQMD jurisdiction which includes the cities of Lancaster and Palmdale and unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County.  AFV incentives are one per household, one per person towards new AFV purchases or lease agreements made with local Antelope Valley Dealerships.

The District no longer offers incentives for Electric Home Charging Units nor AFVs purchased outside of the Antelope Valley.  Businesses are not eligible for the AFV incentive, but  are eligible for grant funding toward Electric Infrastructure Projects.
