Private business and public agencies that operate heavy-duty vehicles or mobile off-road equipment in the Sacramento Federal Ozone Nonattainment Area (SFNA), which includes all of Sacramento and Yolo counties and portions of El Dorado, Placer, Sutter and Solano counties, can receive funds to reduce the costs of new lower emission technologies for diesel engines or zero-emission technologies. The SacMetro AQMD helps fleets pay for new lower emission engines, lower emission retrofits, and new equipment replacements under the SacMetro AQMD Low-Emission Vehicle Incentive Program. Mobile sources such as cars, trucks, tractors and other on-road and off-road vehicles produce 70 percent of the pollution in the air. Low-emission fuels and technologies lead the way to cleaner air. By helping businesses purchase newer engines the SacMetro AQMD will speed up progress to reduce air emissions, improve air quality, and help meet state and federal clean air standards.
