Today, the Bay Area’s largest source of smog forming emissions – over 60% – comes from mobile sources like cars, trucks, buses and construction equipment. The number of mobile sources will rise considerably along with expected population growth.

Funding is provided to reduce emissions from off-road equipment by replacing an older engine with a newer, cleaner engine in an existing piece of equipment.
The Air District will start accepting project applications for the Carl Moyer Program Year 16 funding cycle on Monday July 14, 2014.
This project option is most appropriate when 1) the existing equipment is still structurally sound with many years of future operational life, 2) there is a replacement engine option available from the manufacturer, and 3) the costs are not prohibitively expensive when compared to the value of the overall piece of equipment. The project will require the addition of a CARB-verified retrofit emission control device when 1) the replacement engine has a device verified to work with it and 2) it can be installed without posing safety risks or violations set forth by CARB and OSHA. The only exception to this requirement is for equipment currently exempt from regulation. Those equipment owners may choose to opt-out of the retrofit requirement.

All Carl Moyer Projects require at least three years of emission reductions that are surplus to any regulation. This requires determining the regulatory status of a piece of equipment before being able to determine incentive eligibility.
Regulations for off-road equipment vary according to the engine type and application of each piece of equipment. All off-road equipment powered by large spark ignition engines fall under the LSI Fleet Rule. All off-road equipment operating at ports and intermodal rail yards fall under the Cargo Handling Equipment (CHE) Regulation. Most diesel equipment operating in construction, mining, rental and heavy industry fall under the Off-Road Regulation. Off-road equipment operating at least 50% of the time in qualifying agricultural activities is currently exempt from any regulation. Compliance dates vary by type of regulation and fleet size.
Additional information on off-road regulations can be found at California Air Resources Board (CARB) Diesel Activities - Mobile Vehicles and Equipment website.
