Air Quality Fact

The Winter Spare the Air season runs from November 1, 2009, through February 28, 2010. During this period,  wood burning is banned when a Winter Spare the Air Alert is in effect. On days when burning is allowed residents must still burn cleanly using dry, seasoned fire wood and not burn garbage, leaves or other material that would cause excessive smoke.

Off Road Retrofit

Funding is available to reduce emissions from off-road equipment by installing a retrofit emission control device on an existing piece of equipment, commonly called Diesel Particulate Filters (DPFs) or filters.

The online application will be available Monday July 14, 2014. To apply, visit the Funding Sources section on the left of your screen and select Carl Moyer Program.

Funding is available to:
  • Install a retrofit emission control device on an existing piece of equipment up to 100% of project cost.

The utilization of these devices is most appropriate when:

  1. the existing engine is certified to a Tier 1 or newer emissions standard
  2. there is a CARB-verified emission control device for the engine, and
  3. the device does not pose any safety risks or violations which might impair the safe operation of the vehicle or violate the safety standards prescribed under federal or state requirements for safety or health.

Off-Road Regulatory Information

Carl Moyer Projects require at least three years (two years for small fleets) 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.
