  1. Gasoline-electric hybrid
  2. Diesel-electric hybrid
  3. Plug-in hybrid
  4. 100 percent electric
  5. Hydrogen fueled
  6. Fueled with B20 or higher biofuel for more than 6 months of the year; and/or
  7. Fueled with E85 or higher ethanol for more than 6 months of the year.

For this credit, the institution’s motorized fleet includes all institution-owned and operated vehicles that are used for transporting people and/or goods.  Heavy construction equipment (e.g. excavators and pavers) and maintenance equipment (e.g. lawn-mowers and leaf blowers) are not included in this credit.    


This credit applies to all institutions that have a motorized vehicle fleet. 


Institutions earn the maximum of 2 points for this credit when all vehicles in their fleets are alternatively fueled and/or powered.  Incremental points are available for using alternative fuels in some vehicles and/or having some alternatively powered vehicles.  For example, an institution for which gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles comprise 50 percent of the total fleet would earn 1 point (half of the points available for this credit).
