Cap-and-Trade Dollars ‘Moving California’ Toward Cleaner Transportation - July 19, 2017

Want to learn about zero-emission projects happening in your community? A new website aptly named Moving California provides information about the component of California Climate Investments that deals with opportunities for clean transportation. The site is rich with projects that are innovative, progressive and visionary – traits often associated with the Golden State.

Moving California showcases transportation-related California Climate Investments – a statewide program that puts billions of cap-and-trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy and improving public health and the environment -- in an approachable, clean format.

Want to know how the nearly $600 million in cap-and-trade funding so far is being spent? You’ll see just how California Climate Investments are ensuring Californians who historically have had fewer opportunities to join the clean-car movement are getting in on the action.

Have environmental justice-related concerns? Click on the “Projects in Action” header and learn how lower-income communities, historically disproportionately impacted by pollution, are getting financial assistance that helps people living in those communities access cleaner transportation options that reduce pollution -- and greenhouse gas emissions -- in their neighborhoods.

Looking for information and resources to help you participate in, and take control of, a clean California future? You’ll find a plethora of relevant information – and opportunities -- on the Moving California site. Visit the Moving California website to get enlightened about a great number of clean transportation opportunities for individuals, families and businesses that help to clean up our air and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in California – the sixth largest economy in the world.

Zero-Emission School Buses…How Does That Sound? - May 12, 2017

Raise your hand if you remember your more youthful days, having to breathe the visible black haze, also known as diesel soot, at the bus zone of your elementary, junior high and high schools. We certainly do, and even back then didn’t we all suspect that breathing it could not be good for us? Well now we KNOW it is not.

Google “effects of diesel soot” and you’ll find out just how bad diesel soot is to your health. But there is good news on the horizon. Children in the Greater Sacramento region will no longer have to breathe diesel soot from old school buses because they are about to get replaced with 29 new zero-emission school buses.

Thanks in part to a $7.5 million grant from the California Air Resources Board, and sponsored by the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District and its partners, the largest electric school bus deployment project in the nation was announced at a media event on May 12, 2017! Welcome to the future my friends.

One-Stop Truck Event: May 23rd in Madera - April 28, 2017

Readers may recall that in the fourth quarter of 2016, a California Air Resources Board (CARB) One-Stop Truck Event scheduled for Madera had to be postponed. The good news is that it has been rescheduled and we are pleased to announce that the new date is Tuesday, May 23rd.

Remember, One-Stops are the ultimate in convenience and service for those who prefer to take care of all-things-diesel-compliance in one day, at one place. Whether your concerns are on-road truck and bus, tractor-trailer greenhouse gas, off-road, cargo handling, large spark ignition, drayage or transport refrigeration, portable equipment or you-name-it, you will get answers and guidance with a smile and no run-around.

In addition to the truck compliance inspection demonstrations and one-on-one compliance assistance, there will be training sessions covering topics such as regulatory overview, latest emission reduction technologies and the ever-popular matters of financial assistance and upgrade incentives. Have questions about reporting your rig or fleet into the CARB TRUCRS database? See you there. Take a look at our One-Stop webpage for more information.
