Electric Forklift Program
Power up with cash incentives for replacing your internal combustion forklift with an electric equivalent.
Electric Forklift Program Announcement
Electric forklifts have lower operating costs, lower emissions, less maintenance and quieter operation. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) incentivizes the replacement of internal combustion forklifts with electric powered forklifts. Incentives are available for a limited time for the replacement of internal combustion forklifts with electric-powered forklifts. You can receive a $2,000 incentive when you make the switch.
Replacing Existing Forklifts?
TVA’s EnergyRight® Solutions Electric Forklift Program will provide a $2,000 incentive per forklift to replace internal combustion Class 4 (cushion tire) and Class 5 (pneumatic tire) forklifts with electric powered Class 1 (counterbalance) or Class 2 (narrow aisle) forklifts.
Purchasing New Forklifts?
A $2,000 incentive is available for the purchase or lease of a new Class 1 or Class 2 electric forklift instead of the purchase or lease of a Class 4 or Class 5 internal combustion forklift.
Applicant must purchase a or lease a new electric forklift and it remain operational at the site for a minimum of the following to receive the incentive:
- Two years if operating at a 3-Shift per day operation
- Three years if operating at a 2-Shift per day operation
- Five years if operating at 1-Shift per day operation
