ordiesel -- 2008 Carl Moyer Multidistrict Solicitation; Early Action Recordkeeping for In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation Posted: 24 Feb 2008 16:08:17
ARB staff is providing a notice (below) regarding opportunities to apply for 2008 Carl Moyer program multidistrict funding and a reminder to fleets that plan to claim early credit under the in-use off-road diesel vehicle regulation to keep adequate records to claim such credit. The in-use off-road diesel vehicle regulation includes provisions for early credit for retrofitting, repowering and retiring vehicles. There are advantages to taking actions early. More details regarding those advantages, and how fleets can get credit for early actions are included in our early action fact sheet at: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/ordiesel/documents/OffRoadDieselEarlyActionsFS.pdf For any early action for which fleets plan to claim credit, fleets must record the vehicle type, vehicle manufacturer, vehicle model, vehicle model year, and vehicle serial number, as well as the engine manufacturer, engine model, engine family, engine serial number, engine model year, and engine maximum power for the affected vehicle. The following records must also be kept: • Retrofitting - For each vehicle within the fleet that was retrofit with the highest level VDECS available at the time of retrofit prior to March 1, 2009, the date of retrofit and whether Carl Moyer Incentive Program funding was used to pay for the retrofit; • Repowering - For each vehicle within the fleet that was repowered with a Tier 1 or newer engine prior to March 1, 2009, the date of repower; • Retiring - For early credit for retirement of Tier 0 vehicles, engine and vehicle information (as described above) for each and every vehicle within the fleet between March 1, 2006 and March 1, 2009, as well as the date of any purchase and/or retirement between March 1, 2006 and March 1, 2009. The Carl Moyer Program provides monetary grants for the incremental cost of cleaner than required technology. Section 44286 of the Health and Safety Code gives ARB the authority to reserve up to ten percent of Carl Moyer Program funding for multidistrict projects. February 15, 2008, the ARB released a solicitation seeking projects that qualify for this multidistrict funding: projects that operate in more than one air district, or that impact air quality in more than one air district as a result of air pollutant transport.
