TORONTO, Ont. – The Ontario government is now accepting applications for rebates towards environmentally-friendly commercial vehicles and anti-idling technologies.

Applicants can receive up to one-third of the incremental capital cost of a Class 3-7 alternative fuel-powered truck, including hybrids, or one-third the cost of an anti-idling device for Class 8 tractors including auxiliary power units.

To download application forms, visit www.mto.gov.on.ca.

The funding is part of the province’s Green Commercial Vehicle Program, which will allocate $15 million towards green commercial vehicle technologies. The program is retroactive to August, 2007.

Both the Ontario Trucking Association and Owner-Operators’ Business Association of Canada (OBAC) have lauded the program, however OBAC said it would like to see more funding allocated towards owner/operators.

Only $2.9 million of the funding will be available to owner/operators for anti-idling technologies such as APUs.
