ordiesel -- Idling Policy Guidelines, Revised Calculators, & Correction of False Rumors Posted: 23 Sep 2008 13:18:30
ARB has released guidelines for the written idling policy required by the off-road regulation, slightly revised the fleet average calculators, and made corrections to false news reports that the off-road regulation was delayed. The off-road diesel regulation requires that all medium and large off-road fleets (those with over 2500 horsepower) prepare a written idling policy and make it available to operators by March 1, 2009. ARB has released information on what fleet owners should include in their written idling policies, as well as information about the fines associated with the idling restrictions. The guidelines for the written idling policy can be found at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/ordiesel/guidance/writtenidlingguide.pdf ARB staff have also posted updated versions of the Large/Medium and Small Off-Road Fleet Average Calculators for the in-use off-road diesel vehicle regulation. The revised calculators are available at http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/ordiesel/documents/documents.htm#fleet The Fleet Average Calculators are Excel files designed to assist fleets in planning for compliance. The calculators have been revised to correct minor errors and to enhance the Summary Results page. If there are any questions regarding the calculators, please contact Elizabeth Yura at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by phone at (916) 323-2397. Lastly, ARB would like to clarify that the off-road diesel regulation has not been delayed. Some recent news reports have incorrectly implied that the off-road regulation was delayed indefinitely. In actuality, consideration of the diesel truck and bus regulation was postponed for two months, but the implementation schedule for the off-road diesel regulation has not changed.
