The BCTA will be accepting applications for CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency (HDVE) Program Incentives for 2021 in late January. One requirement – successful completion of a free, one-day training.
The CleanBC HDVE Program, funded by the Province of British Columbia, offers rebates for up to 30 to 50 percent of eligible costs for equipment, to a maximum of $15,000 per vehicle or $100,000 per fleet.
During the January application period, BC carriers who complete this course may apply for rebates on approved fuel-efficiency equipment that promises documented savings in fuel usage and decreased greenhouse gas emissions. Eligible equipment includes wide-based single tires (445mm or wider), APUs, selected aerodynamic devices and engine or fuel system modifications. Visit the CleanBC HDVE Program Guide, for an updated list of eligible fuel-efficiency equipment.
A BCTA membership is not required. The primary goal of Program Incentive distribution is to reduce GHG emissions from heavy-duty on-road commercial vehicles. Incentive applications are open to all BC-based carriers, including owner-operators. And, BCTA will distribute Program Incentives among eligible applicants in a way that supports diversification across provincial regions as well as motor carrier types and fleet size.
Carriers may apply for CleanBC HDVE Program Incentives for 2021 in January. The following eligibility requirements apply:
- Companies must have one or more heavy-duty commercial vehicles (GVW greater than 11,794 kg) that is licensed and insured to operate in BC, conducts business in BC and has a terminal located in BC.
- At least one company representative must successfully complete this free, one-day training prior to applying for incentives.
- Rebates are not retroactive; fleets cannot apply for incentives for equipment they have already purchased.
