State Zero Emission Vehicle (ZEV) Acquisition Plan Requirements

State agencies must prepare fleet decarbonization plans for state fleet vehicles. A light-duty vehicle (LDV) decarbonization plan must be complete by December 31, 2023, and a medium- and heavy-duty vehicle (MHDV) decarbonization plan must be complete by December 31, 2025. Fleet decarbonization plans must meet the following schedule:

  • All state LDVs must be ZEVs by December 31, 2035
  • All state MHD vehicles must be ZEVs by December 31, 2040

To support state fleet vehicle acquisition goals, state agencies must file their LDV fleet decarbonization plans with the GreenNY Council (GreenNY). Emergency vehicles are exempt from these requirements, but agencies must evaluate emergency ZEV technologies for adoption on an annual basis. Decarbonization plans must include interim targets to achieve decarbonization goals. State agencies must update their fleet decarbonization plans every three years. Additional conditions apply. For more information, see the New York Office of General Services GreenNY website.
