Heavy-Duty Grant Estimator for the Texas Clean Fleet Program (TCFP)

Estimate your potential grant amount and discover how competitive your grant application might be.

How to Use This Grant Estimator

Use the estimator to determine the cost per ton and emissions reductions for each heavy-duty, on-road vehicle you would like to replace. See the example below to calculate the cost per ton for multiple vehicles.

Values provided via this tool are estimates based solely on the information you have provided. Final emissions reductions and cost per ton calculations will be computed by TERP staff for your vehicles that meet the eligibility criteria for TCFP.

Should you have a vehicle replacement scenario this estimator does not address, please email terp@tceq.texas.gov.

Example for Multiple Vehicles

You have three, 2002 diesel haul trucks and are requesting $100,000, $120,000 and $85,000 to replace them with natural gas equivalents. This will reduce the NOx emissions by 3.7594 tons per truck. Divide your total requested grant amount of $305,000 by your total NOx emissions reductions of 11.2782 tons. This results in a cost per ton of $27,043.32.

More Information on Eligibility and Cost Per Ton

Refer to Section 2.0 of the application/pdfRequest for Grant Applications (RFGA) for additional details about vehicle eligibility criteria.

See the application/pdfTCFP Technical Supplement for details about how emissions reductions and cost per ton are calculated, or to complete the calculations yourself.

Your Estimated Cost Per Ton

Emission Standard for your old vehicle:    g/bhp-hr

Emission Standard for your new vehicle:    g/bhp-hr

Standard Annual Usage:    miles

Total NOx Reductions:    tons

Cost per Ton:   

 

 

Your Vehicle Type

Old vehicles must be replaced with a new vehicle of the same weight classification and used in the same application or vocation as the vehicle being replaced.

Please select "Other" unless your vehicle is described in the drop down box. Please note that haul truck specifically refers to Class 8b vehicles that haul goods in a tractor-trailer configuration.

Your Old Vehicle

lbs


g/bhp-hr

This estimator will use the standard emission rate, when available, for this vehicle unless a Family Emissions Limit is entered. Please see the Technical Supplement for the Texas Clean Fleet Program for more information about Family Emissions Limits. Many vehicles do not have one. You will need to look up a Family Emissions Limit for vehicles constructed between 2006-2009.

Your New Vehicle

lbs


g/bhp-hr

This estimator will use the standard emission rate, when available, for this vehicle unless a Family Emissions Limit is entered. Please see the Technical Supplement for the Texas Clean Fleet Program for more information about Family Emissions Limits. Many vehicles do not have one, but your cleaner fuel vehicle may be certified to a lower standard such as 0.02 g/bhp-hr NOx for natural gas vehicles.

Your Time in Eligible Areas

%

The length for all TCFP contracts is five years.

Each qualifying vehicle must be operated at least 25% of its total annual mileage in the eligible counties of the Clean Transportation Zone (CTZ).

Your Requested Grant Amount

The vehicle cost should be the incremental cost of the vehicle purchase. Please refer to Section 1.2 of the RFGA for a list of eligible costs. You may request up to 80% of the incremental cost to purchase the new vehicle.
