United States Department of the Navy Deployment of Nontactical Vehicles


In 2016, the California Energy Commission and the Department of the Navy signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to provide mutual support as Navy and Marine Corps installations in the state transition to alternative energy technologies. The MOU formalizes the partnership and continues their longstanding collaboration on projects that provide energy security and reliability allowing for greater operational flexibility.

Following the MOU signing, the Navy announced that the Navy and Marine Corps would lease 205 new non-tactical electric vehicles for use at California installations. It is the largest integration of electric vehicles in the federal government.

This is one of several partnerships with local, state, federal, nonprofit and other organizations through which the Energy Commission is supporting adoption of clean transportation technologies.
