Banking and Trading Credits for Standard Compliance
State and alternative fuel provider covered fleets may meet their Energy Policy Act (EPAct) requirements through the Standard Compliance method by applying banked credits or purchasing credits from other covered fleets.
Covered fleets earn credits for acquiring light-duty alternative fuel vehicles (AFVs) beyond their requirements. After satisfying these requirements, fleets may earn credit for acquiring heavy-duty AFVs. Credits from AFV acquisitions may be banked for future use or traded. Non-covered fleets may not earn credits.
