HALIFAX, N.S. –Fleets and owner/operators in Nova Scotia can now apply for rebates towards the purchase of fuel-saving technologies under a program offered by Conserve Nova Scotia and the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Association.

A million dollars has been made available as part of the Energy Efficiency Incentive Program.

The rebates will be awarded to fleets and owner/operators who purchase and install new equipment to upgrade tractors and trailers registered and plated in Nova Scotia.

“We believe that this program will result in environmental, health and financial benefits,” said Jean Marc Picard, executive director of the APTA.

Applicants can receive rebates of up to $2,500 per unit for systems including anti-idling technologies, aerodynamic improvements, low rolling resistance tires and tire pressure monitoring and inflation systems. The rebates will cover 20-40% of the cost. Interested fleets or owner/operators must apply for the rebates through the APTA. The deadline is July 30. For more info, visit www.apta.ca.
