Exhaust Retrofit Funding For Off-Road Equipment In Southern California Now Available!

Operators of off-road equipment in the Southern California air district may be eligible for funding for exhaust retrofit devices. If you operate off-road equipment in the Southern California air district, you may be eligible for funding for exhaust retrofit devices, which will also help you avoid future costs to comply with the off-road regulation.

The Mobile Source Air Pollution Reduction Review Committee (MSRC), in conjunction with South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) and with the support of Air Resources Board, is offering funding for off-road retrofits under the second round of the “Off-Road Diesel Retrofit Showcase”.

The Showcase II Program will pay 100% of the cost of purchase and installation for qualified devices and offers the following

• Double credit under the off-road regulation • Full purchase cost of device, including sales tax and shipping costs • Device installation cost, and any additives needed for the 1000-hour demonstration period • Data logger and its installation • Reasonable funding for initial data logging and installation design • $500 per vehicle to cover a portion of fleet’s program management costs through the installation phase (only available if fleet is the applicant)

The goal of the Showcase is to demonstrate the viability of diesel emission control devices in a variety of off-road environments. Further information regarding the Showcase is at http://www.arb.ca.gov/diesel/showcase/showcase.htm.
If you are interested in participating, we urge you to apply as soon as possible since funding is limited and allocation will be on first come first serve basis.
