Carl Moyer Program: Public Agency and Utility Vehicles
The Carl Moyer Program funds a wide range of on-road project types including public agency and utility vehicles. Public agency and utility (PAU) vehicle replacement engines certified to the 2010 emissions standards or cleaner are eligible for Carl Moyer Program funding. The Fleet Rule for On-Road Heavy-Duty Diesel-Fueled Public and Utility Fleets was approved in 2005 to reduce diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions from fleets operated by public agencies and utilities. The rule mandated affected owners to equip their affected vehicles with the Best Available Control Technology (BACT) by December 31, 2012. Municipality or utility owned vehicles with a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) over 14,000 lbs. equipped with engines certified to PM emission standards greater than 0.01 grams per brake horsepower-hour (g/bhp-hr) are required to use the BACT. Private utilities become subject to the Statewide Truck and Bus Regulation starting January 1, 2021.
