Tennessee funds APUs

| March 10, 2010

Tennessee truck owners are eligible to apply for up to $4,000 in grant rebates to install auxiliary power units on their trucks.

An estimated $1.73 million in American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will supplement the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation’s Idle Smart grant rebates to help pay for clean diesel technology. The Idle Smart grant rebates will cover up to 50 percent of the cost of anti-idling technology, such as APUs.

The state program targets owner-operators and Tennessee trucking companies with 30 or fewer truck tractors registered and operating in the state, with priority given to fleets with five or fewer tractors. Approximately 85 percent of the 16,000 motor carriers in the state have five or fewer tractors.
