Minnesota offers clean diesel grants to local fleets

| November 18, 2011

A Minnesota state grant is available for operators to upgrade their trucks to reduce emissions.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has a Clean Diesel grant for state-based fleets that operate “primarily or exclusively” in the state, with a focus on 2006 and older vehicles. A preference will be given to fleets that operate in the Twin Cities seven-county region.

The $350,000 grant covers Environmental Protection EnviAgency/California Air Resources Board-certified idle reduction and emissions reduction technologies, emission upgrades and reefer re-powers.
