Most Are to Be Natural Gas-Fueled ‘Near Zero’ Vehicles,
But Program Backs Electric Drive Deployments as Well
And 97 Conventional Natural Gas Trucks Are Funded Too

The South Coast Air Quality Management District board has approved outlays of nearly $52 million for the agency’s Goods Movement Program under California’s Proposition 1B statute. Prop 1B funding is provided by the California Air Resources Board.

The big winner...

The big winner…

Upwards of $26 million of the CARB money will support the deployment of several hundred natural gas-fueled trucks – 263 of them with the super-low NOx ISL G Near Zero engine from Cummins Westport. It will also support the purchase of more than 60 hybrid replacement and zero emission replacement trucks, as well as charging infrastructure and electric TRUs – transport refrigeration units.

$15 Million for Near Zero Mixers

Irvine, Calif.-based CalPortland/Catalina Pacific is to be the standout recipient, as the firm has been designated to receive $100,000 for each of 150 trucks with the 8.9-liter ISL G NZ.


The engine was certified last year to the optional California Air Resources Board’s options NOx emissions standard of 0.02 grams per brake-horsepower hour — 90% lower than the current EPA heavy-duty engine standards (F&F, September 17).

Other designated double-digit recipients include

  • Superior Ready Mix Concrete for 38 ISL G NZ trucks;
  • Penske Truck Leasing for 30 ISL G NZ trucks;
  • Anthony H. Ostercamp for 38 vehicles: ten ISL G NZ trucks, ten hybrid replacement trucks, ten hybrid replacement trucks capable of zero-emission miles, and eight zero-emission replacement trucks;
  • PTI Sand & Gravel for 11 ISL G NZ trucks;
  • Mountain Valley Express for ten ISL G NZ trucks; and
  • Overseas Freight, Inc. for 29 zero-emission replacement trucks.

SCAQMD is also making 97 awards of $65,000 each – totaling $6.28 million – for natural gas-fueled replacement trucks powered by standard 0.20-gram-per-brake-horsepower hour engines.

The lion’s share of the CARB money via SCAQMD is for trucks with the new low-NOx engine.
