Utah Clean Diesel Program Looking for Partners in Non-Attainment Areas

posted in: Utah.gov | 0

Summary of Eligible Funding

 

The Utah Clean Diesel Program is looking for partners to replace, repower, or retrofit diesel equipment that is operating in nonattainment areas in the state (Box Elder, Cache, Davis, Salt Lake, Tooele, Utah, and Weber counties).

Verified Exhaust Controls
EPA will fund up to 100% of the cost of eligible exhaust controls.

Engine Upgrades
EPA will fund up to 75% of the cost of eligible engine upgrades.

Verified/Certified Cleaner Fuel Use
EPA will fund the cost differential between the eligible cleaner fuels and conventional diesel fuels.

Verified Idle Reduction Technologies
EPA will fund up to 50% or 100% of the cost of an eligible, verified idle reduction technology, depending on the combination of technologies chosen:

  • EPA will fund up to 50% of the cost of an eligible, verified idle reduction technology.
  • EPA will fund up to 100% of the cost of an eligible, verified idle reduction technology, if that technology is combined on the same vehicle with a new eligible verified exhaust control as described in.
  • Verified Aerodynamic Technologies and Low Rolling Resistance Tires
    EPA will not fund stand-alone aerodynamic technologies or low rolling resistance tires. EPA will fund up to 50% or 100% of the cost of verified aerodynamic technologies or verified low rolling resistance tires, depending on the combination of technologies chosen, as described below:
    • If verified aerodynamic technologies or low rolling resistance tires are combined on the same vehicle with an eligible verified exhaust control as described in Section I.D.2.a.i, up to 100% funding will be provided for the entire package.
    • If verified aerodynamic technologies or low rolling resistance tires are combined on the same vehicle with a verified idle reduction technology, up to 50% funding will be provided for the entire package.
    • If verified aerodynamic technologies or low rolling resistance tires are ¬†combined on the same vehicle with an eligible verified exhaust control AND a verified idle reduction technology, up to 100% funding will be provided for the entire package.
  • Certified Engine Repower
    EPA will fund up to 75% of the cost (labor and equipment) of an eligible engine repower. Only vehicles not going through their normal attrition cycle will be eligible.
  • Certified Vehicle/Equipment Replacement
    Only vehicles not going through their normal attrition cycle will be eligible.
    • Non-road Diesel Vehicles and Equipment
      EPA will fund the incremental cost of a newer, cleaner vehicle or piece of equipment powered by a 2010 or newer model year certified non-road diesel engine, up to 25% of the cost of an eligible replacement vehicle or piece of equipment.
    • Highway Diesel Vehicles and Equipment
      EPA will fund the incremental cost of a newer, cleaner vehicle or piece of equipment powered by a 2010 or newer model year certified highway heavy-duty diesel engine, up to 25% of the cost of an eligible replacement vehicle or piece of equipment (except for drayage vehicles; see below).
    • Drayage Truck Replacement
      EPA will fund up to 50% of the cost of eligible drayage trucks that meet EPA’s 2007 or newer emissions levels for heavy-duty highway vehicles.

If you have an eligible project, please download the Utah Clean Diesel Application and email it to Lisa Burr. Please be sure to fill out both the Project Information and Vehicle Fleet tabs on the worksheet.

Applications will be evaluated by UDAQ to determine which projects best meet the region’s priorities, provide a significant reduction in diesel emissions, are cost-effective, and have a positive effect on Utah non-attainment areas.
