Free Session on Money for Trucks and TRUs Replacement
The South Coast Air Quality Management District is presenting a complimentary one-hour webinar to help applicants learn about the $50 million in new Proposition 1B funding for the replacement of heavy-duty goods movement trucks and transport refrigeration units. The webinar takes place on Thursday, June 23 at 2:00pm Pacific time.
Money is being made available for
- heavy-duty truck replacements;
- transport refrigeration units (TRUs); and
- supporting infrastructure such as electrified truck stops, charging stations for electric vehicles and equipment (including TRUs), and hydrogen fueling.
The program allows for funding of up to $200,000 in truck replacement costs for clean advanced technologies and up to $100,000 for zero emission TRUs, as summarized by the following table:
The June 23 webinar will be conducted by SCAQMD program supervisor Vicki White, who has more than 14 years of experience with the agency’s Technology Advancement Office. She will cover key eligibility criteria, technology options and funding amounts, and the application process itself: overview and deadlines (the deadline for the latest round of funding, released on June 3, is August 4).
SCAQMD urges webinar attendance by California operators of Class 6, 7 and 8 fleet trucks, operators of drayage trucks seeking compliance with California Air Resources Board regulations, TRU owners, and “entities who wish to own and operate electrification or hydrogen infrastructure for trucks, or TRUs.”
Pose Questions in Advance
Webinar attendees will be able to submit question when registering.
SCAQMD notes that the Proposition 1B Program is administered via a partnership CARB with the goal of quickly reducing air pollution from freight movement along California’s trade corridors. To be eligible for funding, projects must achieve early or extra emission reductions not otherwise required by law or regulation.
