Project Type Questions

Do the incentives apply to displacing stationary natural gas/propane generators?

Not at this time. The California Air Resources Board is working on adding a general stationary source category where backup generators could potentially be considered as a project type. 

Would the clean air grants cover alternative energy solutions like fuel cells for traffic signal equipment?

Not at this time. The California Air Resources Board is working on adding a general stationary source category where backup generators could potentially be considered as a project type. 

Community Outreach Questions

What kind of community outreach is the Sac Metro Air District required to do?

Community outreach and documentation of project support is required for this program.  All air districts are required to provide reports of their outreach to the California Air Resources Board(CARB) twice a year.  The type of outreach and the method of how to collect input has not been specifically determined by CARB and is up to the local air district. You can read more about these requirement in the Community Air Protection Incentive Guidelines.

The Sac Metro Air District has focused on outreaching to the communities that were identified through the Community Air Protection (AB617) process and our South Sacramento/Florin Air Monitoring Community. 

In the Yolo-Solano Air District, we are attending events for the community in area that were designated as a disadvantaged community and low income area by CalEnviroScreen 3.0. Yolo Solano AQMD currently does not have any communities identified through the Community Air Protection process.
