Volkswagen survey – Phase II input
Background: MPCA can use funds from the Volkswagen settlement for only two purposes: (1) replacing older diesel engines, equipment and engines, and (2) electric vehicle (EV) charging stations.
We can spend a maximum of 15% of our total funds for EV charging stations under the terms of the settlement.
What factors do you feel are the most important for Minnesota to consider as we fund projects? You may only choose up to 3.
Environmental Justice: Prioritize vulnerable communities
Health Impacts: Focus on achieving health benefits by also reducing related pollutants
Public Fleets: Focus on publicly-owned vehicles
Private Fleets: Equal eligibility for privately-owned vehicles
Statewide: Spread funding across Minnesota
Volkswagen Areas: Fund projects where most diesel VWs are located
Cost-Effective: Achieve greatest NOx emissions reductions for lowest cost per ton
