                A.            Manufacturers shall establish a ZEV credit bank with the state on or before January 1, 2011, and establish reporting procedures to report additions and deletions to that bank in accordance with CARB manufacturers advisory correspondence (MAC) #06-03 zero emission vehicle (ZEV) credit reporting and tracking system and Subsections B, C, D, E and F of 20.11.104.106 NMAC.

                B.            The state shall set aside a number of New Mexico ZEV credits proportionally equivalent to the number of ZEV credits possessed by the requesting manufacturer for use in the state of California at the beginning of the 2011 model year.  This transfer shall be performed only after all credit obligations for model years 2010 and earlier have been satisfied in California.  Each manufacturer's California credit balances shall be multiplied by the ratio of the average number of PCs and LDT1s produced and delivered for sale in New Mexico to the combined average number of PCs and LDT1s produced and delivered for sale in California in model years 2003 through 2005, or, alternatively, by the ratio of PCs and LDT1s produced and delivered for sale in New Mexico to the combined number of PCs and LDT1s produced and delivered for sale in California in model year 2011.  In either case, the time period used to determine the credit transfer ratio shall be used to determine model year 2011 ZEV sales requirements in New Mexico.  The state shall establish ZEV compliance accounts for each manufacturer and allocate the credits calculated under this subsection to such compliance accounts, including separate accounts for PZEV, AT-PZEV, NEV, Type 0 ZEVs, Type I ZEVs, Type II ZEVs, Type III ZEVs, transportation system, and extended service.  The state shall notify each manufacturer of the number of ZEV credits available for use by July 31, 2011.  Credits issued pursuant to this subsection may only be used in New Mexico for compliance with the ZEV provisions subject to the same requirements and limitations on credit use set forth in CCR, Section 1962, adjusted for New Mexico specific vehicle numbers.  Each manufacturer operating in accordance with this subsection shall do the following.

                    (1)     By May 1, 2011, provide the state with the total number of PC and LDT1 vehicles produced and delivered for sale in New Mexico and California for 2003 through 2005 model years.

                    (2)     Alternatively, by May 1, 2011, provide the state with the total number of PC and LDT1 vehicles to be produced and delivered for sale in New Mexico and California in model year 2011.  By March 1, 2012, provide the state with actual model year 2011 PC and LDT1 vehicles produced and delivered for sale in New Mexico and California.  By May 31, 2012, the state shall adjust and notify each manufacturer of the number of ZEV credits established based on actual model year 2011.

                    (3)     By May 1, 2011, provide the state with the total number of banked California credits after all model year 2010 and earlier obligations have been met.

                C.            In addition to the credits transferred in accordance with Subsection B of 20.11.104.106 NMAC, manufacturers may also generate and deposit credits for vehicles delivered for sale within the state during the 2009 through 2010 model years, a manufacturer shall open an account with the ZEV credit bank and submit an appropriate notice of credit generation to the state by the time such vehicles are delivered.

                D.            A manufacturer shall be entitled to full credit for each type III ZEV placed in service prior to model year 2012 in any state that has adopted the California ZEV regulations contained in CCR, section 1962.

                E.             A manufacturer with an account in the ZEV credit bank may acquire credits from another manufacturer with an account in the ZEV credit bank, provided that if the credits are to be used for future compliance with the ZEV sales requirement in 20.11.104.105 NMAC, ZEV Sales, the transaction shall be recorded in the ZEV credit bank and certified by both parties to the transaction.

                F.             A vehicle equivalent credit shall not constitute or convey a property right.
