  • 1. Wisconsin Diesel Truck Idling Reduction Program Idling Reduction Workshop State Energy Office June 10, 2014
  • 2. Wisconsin Diesel Truck Idling Reduction Program • Assist motor carriers in the purchase and installation of idle reduction equipment • Cost sharing program to reduce diesel truck idling • The primary goals: • Reduce air pollution emissions • Reduce fuel consumption • Promote field testing
  • 3. Why was the Program Created? • Trucking Industry worked with the state legislature to address the: • Rising fuel costs • Anti-idling laws throughout the country • A need to field test before making the investment • Motor carriers pay a significant amount of fuel and road taxes; return on investment
  • 4. Idling Reduction Program • Created by the Governors Budget Bill, 2005 Wisconsin Act 25 – nine years of success! • WI motor carriers that own and operate their truck tractors are eligible for up to 50% reimbursement of the cost of the unit and installation • Long-haul diesel trucks with a sleeper
  • 5. What is the Funding Source? • Petroleum Environmental Clean Up Fund Award (PECFA) –funded by the states petroleum inspection fees (PIF) of $0.02 gallon • Funding is appropriated in the states biennial budget and has a sunset date of June 30, 2015 • SEO is working to remove that provision of the statute
  • 6. Why Use Idling Reduction Technologies? • In Wisconsin more than 13,000 long-haul heavy-duty trucks idle overnight for required rest stops at least some fraction of the time, using almost 14 million gallons of fuel per year. • Can be reduced without compromising driver comfort or vehicle equipment operations. • Provides significant fuel savings. Reducing fuel consumption will minimize the financial impact of costly diesel fuel to businesses as well as reduce the effects of diesel fuel pollution, which can negatively impact human health.
  • 7. Application Process • Funding Allocations – Large and Small fleets • Eligibility • Tiered system • Technology types – Research • Applications are accepted for six weeks • Bids from vendors • Average the cost of unit and installation • Lottery • Reporting
  • 8. Allocations • Allocations for small fleets. The department may annually allocate up to 25 percent of the grant funding, for awarding to applicants who own and operate 50 or fewer truck tractors • In any fiscal year the department may not pay to any one applicant more than 20 percent of the amount appropriated • $1 Million available • Up to 50% of the cost of the unit and installation
  • 9. Who is Eligible to Apply? • Applicants must meet certain requirements: • Common, contract or private motor carrier transporting freight • Headquartered in Wisconsin • Applicants principal central administrative office is located in WI, or • Applicant business pays at least 80% of its payroll to employees employed in Wisconsin • Owns and operates their truck-tractor • Leased on vs. Leased to? • Complies with grant conditions • Must pay at least 50% of the cost of the unit and installation
  • 10. How Many Units Am I Eligible For? *Onlytruckswithpost-1998diesel truckengines areeligible. Applicant’s Number of Eligible Trucks Maximum Number of Units Funded 1 1 2 to 10 2 11 to 50 2 or 10% of the applicants eligible truck tractors* 51 to 250 6 or 7% of the applicant’s eligible truck tractors* 251 to 500 18 or 6% of the applicant’s eligible truck tractors* 501 to 2,500 30 or 5% of the applicant’s eligible truck tractors* Over 2,500 125 or 3% of the applicant’s eligible truck tractors *Whichever is greater
  • 11. Types of Idling Reduction Technologies • APU – Auxiliary Power Units • BP – Battery Powered Units • ERS - Energy Recovery Systems • DFH- Direct Fired Heaters • Combinations (must be installed simultaneously) • SmartWay Verified Technologies List (recommend but not required) • http://www.epa.gov/smartway/technology/idling.htm • Vendor Quote form is included in the application and must be filled out and signed by the vendor
  • 12. Guidelines… • Purchases must occur after funding has been received by the State Energy Office • Anticipated funding on July 1, 2014, purchase and installation must occur on or after this date • $1 Million available with separate ‘pots’ of money for small fleets vs. large fleets • Reimbursement for up to 50% of the cost of the unit and installation • Applications must be completed and received by the deadline date
  • 13. Awards from 2007-2012 • More than 2,143 idling reduction technologies have been funded • $7.8 million dollars has been allocated to participating fleets • Each year more than 1 million gallons of diesel fuel are saved • Environmental health • Human health
  • 14. Fiscal Year Fleet Size Units Award Amount FY07 Large Fleet 185 747,274.64$ FY07 Small Fleets 49 252,725.36$ Total 2 1,000,000.00$ FY08 Large Fleet 431 1,469,092.17$ FY08 Small Fleets 121 457,788.66$ Total 552 1,926,880.83$ FY09 Large Fleet 130 482,170.10$ FY09 Small Fleets 116 442,105.09$ Total 246 924,275.19$ FY10 Large Fleet 456 1,593,316.71$ FY10 Small Fleets 106 406,683.29$ Total 562 2,000,000.00$ FY12 Large Fleet 211 756,556.88$ FY12 Small Fleets 60 242,833.44$ Total 271 999,390.32$ FY13 Large Fleet 223 748,402.35$ FY13 Small Fleets 55 251,597.65$ Total 278 1,000,000.00$ Grand Total 2,143 7,850,546.34$ Diesel Truck Idling Reduction Grant Program Award Totals
