The state plans to use $72 million from a settlement with Volkswagen to reduce smog-forming pollution from vehicles by electrifying parts of the transportation sector.
In a draft plan prepared by the state Department of Environmental Protection, funds would be targeted to curbing diesel emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, buses, and non-road equipment, particularly in environmental justice communities.
The plan, while short on specifics, will be modified based on input from public outreach meetings, according to officials.
Clean-energy advocates and environmental groups have been eagerly awaiting decisions on how the state will disburse the money. The state obtained $72.2 million as the result of a consent decree reached by the federal government, California and Volkswagen, stemming from the auto manufacturer’s cheating on emissions testing.
