WINDSOR, Calif., July 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Solectrac today announced the eligibility of its e25G and e25H electric tractors 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, opens on July 18 and pays up to 50% of the initial purchase of eligible zero-emission off-road equipment.
“Thanks to the state of California, the CORE program is helping get more electric tractors into the hands of customers and allowing Solectrac to grow our product offerings. We encourage small business owners and government entities to take advantage of this opportunity to switch their polluting equipment to our zero-emission electric tractors,” said Mani Iyer, CEO of Solectrac. “Electrifying off-road machinery will help customers realize the benefits of zero-emission operations, including less pollution, quieter operation and lower total cost of ownership compared to diesel-powered tractors.”
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. Solectrac tractors are eligible for the incentive 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.
Solectrac assembles its tractors in Windsor, California, at one of the largest dedicated electric tractor assembly facilities in the United States. Recently expanded, the facility supports local green jobs and has an annual assembly capacity of 6,000 units per year.
Solectrac electric tractors are as powerful as their diesel counterparts, without the noise and pollution associated with diesel tractors, and can be charged from renewable energy such as wind and solar. Both the e25G and e25H electric tractors accept all standard PTO implements and offer available options such as a front loader, backhoe attachment, cab and three types of tires to suit a wide variety of applications.
Solectrac is the first company to create a national USA certified dealership network and is now partnering with its dealerships to offer an electric tractor rental program, allowing customers to experience the benefits of Solectrac electric tractors on a monthly basis. The Solectrac dealer network currently includes 40 dealers with 86 locations across the country, with 8 of those locations In California.

Solectrac is also directly advocating with members of Congress for a 2023 Farm Bill that empowers farmers to implement climate-friendly agriculture practices through technical assistance and incentives.
