tru -- 2007 CARL MOYER PROGRAM MULTIDISTRICT PROJECT SOLICITATION Posted: 21 Mar 2007 12:25:28
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 multi-district projects. March 16, 2007, 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. The official solicitation is found at the following link: http://www.arb.ca.gov/msprog/moyer/multidistrict/2007_multidistrict_solicitation.pdf ELIGIBLE PROJECTS The 2007 Multidistrict Project Solicitation is directed at providing monetary grants to offset the incremental cost of reduced emission technologies in the following project categories: • Goods movement projects, including: marine vessels and locomotives; off-road equipment permanently located at a maritime port or rail yard; on-road heavy-duty vehicles that transport cargo to and from a maritime port or rail yard (at least 400 annual trips to a port or rail yard); and transport refrigeration units (TRUs); • Off-road construction equipment and mobile agricultural equipment that operates in more than one air district; • PM retrofit devices that also get NOx reductions for on-road heavy-duty vehicles that operate in more than one air district; • Idle reduction technologies installed in on-road heavy-duty vehicles operating in more than one air district (zero-emission idle reduction technologies for any model year on-road heavy-duty vehicles operating in more than one air district, or Level 3 PM retrofit for an APU equipped with a certified engine and installed in a 2006 model year or older on-road heavy-duty vehicle operating in more than one air district); and • TRUs on vehicles or equipment operating in more than one air district. New for 2007, the Multidistrict Project Solicitation also includes the development and implementation of pilot retrofit voucher programs for the following sources: • On-road heavy-duty vehicles operating in more than one air district; and • Off-road construction equipment owned by small businesses. Applications will be screened to determine that: (1) the application is complete; (2) the projects are multidistrict as defined above; (3) the cost-effectiveness will be no more than $14,300 per weighted ton of NOx plus ROG plus twenty times combustion PM reduced; (4) the technology is commercially available; and (5) the emission reductions are real, surplus, quantifiable and enforceable. All applications must be signed by the applicants and must be received by ARB no later than 5:00 PM April 27, 2007. Applications that are not signed by the applicant or that are sent via facsimile or e-mail will not be accepted. Applications can be mailed or hand delivered to: Ms. Grace Garcia Mobile Source Control Division Air Resources Board 1001 I Street Sacramento, CA 95812 SCHEDULE OF EVENTS • The multidistrict funds application forms will be available to the public on March 16, 2007. • An applicant Question and Answer conference for those seeking additional information on the program will be held at the ARB offices in Sacramento on the tentative date of March 29, 2007. • The final filing date and time to submit applications for the multidistrict funds is 5:00 PM, April 27, 2007. • Projects selected for funding will be posted by ARB staff on June 1, 2007.
