Carl Moyer Program: Off-Road Compression-Ignition (CI)
Chapter 5 of the 2017 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines describes the minimum criteria and requirements for mobile, self-propelled, off-road compression-ignition (CI) projects such as construction and agricultural equipment. This chapter also describes criteria for non-agricultural portable equipment. Air districts may set more stringent requirements based upon local priorities.
The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment (Carl Moyer) Program provides incentive grant funding for cleaner-than-required engines and equipment. This partnership between the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and California's local air districts works collaboratively to provide early or surplus emission reductions.
|Repower of existing equipment||Replacement of an existing off-road CI engine with a newer emission- certified engine use.|
|Retrofit purchase||Purchase of a retrofit to reduce emissions.|
|Equipment replacement||Purchases of new or used CI equipment to replace existing CI equipment.|
Carl Moyer Program Funding Amounts
The Air Resources Board (ARB) has adopted in-use fleet rules affecting off-road CI equipment: the In-Use Off-Road Diesel Fueled Fleets Regulation (Off-Road Regulation) and the Cargo Handling Equipment at Ports and Intermodal Rail Yards Regulation (CHE Regulation). Portable engines are regulated under the Airborne Toxic Control Measure for Diesel Particulate Matter. There are limited funding opportunities for equipment subject to these rules.
Listed below are the maximum funding amounts for eligible off-road compression-ignition equipment projects as described in the 2017 Carl Moyer Program Guidelines.
|Vehicle Type||Maximum Funding Amounts (Per piece of equipment)|
|Diesel repower existing equipment||85%|
