California Energy Commission awards $1.6M to support conversion of UPS and USPS vans to electric powertrains

13 March 2014

The California Energy Commission will award Motiv Power Systems Inc. $1.6 million to convert older United Parcel Service (UPS) and US Postal Service (USPS) medium-duty gas or diesel walk-in vans to use its electric power train.

The Commission also approved the award to Pixley Biogas LLC of $4.6 million to construct an anaerobic digestion facility that will produce biogas from dairy manure and will power the adjoining ethanol-producing Calgren Renewable Fuels Biorefinery. CEQA requirements have been completed, and this approval lets them move forward with the project.

The Commission also will award Community Fuels $4.9 million to expand biodiesel production capacity at its Port of Stockton facility from 10 million to at least 15 million gallons per year.
