The eUT+ is our powerful, zero-emission, quiet version of a conventional 80-90 HP tractor category, but superior because it provides instant torque & high peak power capabilities.”

— Mani Iyer, CEO Solectrac

WINDSOR, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Solectrac is excited to announce the eligibility of its narrow zero-emission electric vineyard and orchard tractor, the eUT+, for the California CORE Voucher Program, which aims to accelerate the purchase of zero-emission off-road equipment. The program, which is tailored to small business and government entities, opened on July 18 and pays up to 50% of the initial purchase of eligible zero-emission off-road equipment.

“We appreciate the dedication of the State of California to incentivize zero-emission off-road machinery through its CORE program and encourage small business owners and government entities to take advantage of this opportunity to electrify their machinery at a significantly reduced cost,” said Mani Iyer, CEO of Solectrac. “This is the kind of government action that will help companies like Solectrac, who are committed to providing alternatives to fossil fueled machinery, to grow our customer base and our product offerings.”

The California CORE Voucher program provides vouchers at the point of sale to make eligible zero-emission equipment similar in price to diesel-fueled equipment. It is a first-come-first -serve program and is receiving applications now. “The eUT+ is our powerful, zero-emission, quiet version of a conventional 80-90 HP tractor category, but superior because it provides instant torque & high peak power capabilities, ” Iyer explained. “This machine Is designed to fit between narrow vineyard and orchard rows and perform all the tasks of that size tractor, but without the noise and pollution and with lower total cost of ownership. “

The eUT+ is approved for a $28,000 CORE voucher which makes it as affordable as an equally sized diesel tractor minus the associated environmental and human health costs of fossil fuel combustion. Solectrac is taking orders now for the eUT+ which will be available in early 2024.

Solectrac’s compact 4WD electric tractors, the e25G and e25H, are also eligible for the voucher at $16,147 and $13,753 respectively, and are an ideal solution for California’s hobby farms, golf courses, sports fields, equestrian centers, educational institutions, and municipalities that need to electrify their tractor fleets to comply with California’s climate regulations.
