The California Air Resources Board on April 6 announced an early action compliance credit for trucking fleets that install a particulate filter by July 1 or that make a commitment to purchase a particulate filter by May 1.
By installing a particulate filter early on one truck, a fleet will be able to delay compliance for a second truck in the fleet until Jan. 1, 2017.
The “buy-one-get-one-free” credit applies to trucks with a manufacturer gross vehicle weight rating of more than 26,000 pounds. The number of trucks in the fleet can earn the early action credit is unlimited.
Fleets that install a particulate matter filter by July 1 will get the early action credit.
