Fleet Reporting Under Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) Rule

In December of 2021, New Jersey adopted the Advanced Clean Trucks (ACT) Rule based on California regulations of the same name. For specifics on this adoption and the adopted rule language, see N.J.A.C. 7:27-33.

Part of these regulations at N.J.A.C 7:27-33 include a one-time fleet reporting requirement. This reporting is required by April 1, 2023 and applies to all public fleets in New Jersey with at least one vehicle over 8,500 pounds GVWR and private fleets with at least fifty (50) vehicles over 8,500 pounds GVWR. Exceptions include military tactical vehicles, emergency vehicles, and vehicles awaiting sale.

If, during 2022, you owned, operated, or acted as a broker for more than 50 of these vehicles or had revenues of greater than $50 million for the 2022 tax year, then you are required to report.  While brokers/owners of large fleets over 50 vehicles, as well as government, are required to report, smaller fleets are welcome to report as well.  All the information gathered will assist the Department in determining the best way forward when it comes to electrifying the medium and heavy-duty vehicle fleet in New Jersey.  Without good data, it will be much more difficult to prioritize vehicle types and industry segments where electric vehicles can be deployed first versus those where such a move will not be possible for many more years to come.
