Carb Funding Opportunity

Posted on May 20, 2015

Transport refrigeration unit (TRU) fleets and refrigerated distribution centers that are interested in funding for zero emission TRs or DC infrastructure may be interested in a workshop webcast that is scheduled for Monday, April 27, 2015, from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. to learn about CARB’s proposed Prop 1B funding guidelines update. Zero emission TRs are all-electric TRs, cryogenic TRs, or fuel cell-powered TRs that must be used with DC infrastructure. DC infrastructure includes electric power plugs that are compatible with (and would be used with) all-electric TRs, hybridelectric TRUs, or TRUs equipped with electric standby. Infrastructure also includes cryogenic refrigeration fueling equipment leases that would be used with cryogenic TRs.

• Replace 5 existing TRUs with 5 zero emission TRs – $200,000 or 80% cost cap
• Install 10 electric power plugs at DC – $30,000 or 50% cost cap
• Lease cryogenic fueling infrastructure – $60,00 or 50% cost cap
The workshop notice and the draft concept paper for the Proposition 1B: Goods Movement Emission Reduction Program Update to Program Guidelines is available at:
