Carl Moyer and Off-Road Equipment Replacement Programs

The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program provides incentive grants for cleaner-than-required engines, equipment and other sources of pollution providing early or extra emission reductions. Eligible projects include cleaner on-road, off-road, marine, locomotive and stationary agricultural pump engines and equipment.

Off-Road GeneratorThe program achieves near-term reductions in emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx), particulate matter (PM), and reactive organic gas (ROG) which are necessary for California to meet its clean air commitments under the State Implementation Plan. NOx and ROG combine in the presence of sunlight to form ozone (smog), while PM, a component of diesel exhaust, has been identified as a toxic air contaminant by the Air Resources Board. Please contact Ian Ledbetter with any questions that you may have at (530) 934-6500 or visit the California Air Resources Board Carl Moyer Program web site. The application period typically runs from December until early March of each year.
