Manitoba fleets eligible for more rebates

by Today's Trucking

Manitoba fleets can once again apply for rebates on fuel-saving technologies and retrofits through the Efficient Trucking Program.

“We continue to work toward the goal of GHG reduction and the transportation sector is an important partner in that effort,” said Manitoba Conservation and Climate Minister, Sarah Guillemard. “Our government is pleased to continue offering these incentives for the industry to save money and to reduce emissions.”

The province anticipates the program reduces 25.9 million liters of fuel consumption over the life of the program. The most recent funding round ended March 31, with $3.6 million returned to participating fleets.

The rebates cover up to 50% of the cost of fuel-saving devices, such as low rolling resistance tires, trailer skirts and idle-reduction technologies.

  • Idle reduction may be an important issue for the environment however so is driver comfort. Apu’ s will have to become mandatory. I am 68 years old and still driving long distance. These new trucks that start and stop to keep the cab warm or cool are ridiculous in that they wake you every time. You need well rested drivers for safety.
