HALIFAX, N.S. — Conserve Nova Scotia has extended the deadline and removed the funding cap for a Class 8 fuel efficiency rebate program.
Nova Scotia fleets and owner/ops now have until Sept. 30 to file for their share of the funding. They can secure a rebate covering 20-40% of the cost of qualifying fuel-saving equipment, such as anti-idling devices, aerodynamic fairings, low rolling resistance tires and tire pressure monitoring and inflation systems. To be eligible, the equipment must be EPA SmartWay-verified.
Participants can apply for funding pre-approval by Sept. 30 and then must install the equipment by Nov. 30. The program’s organizers have also removed the cap that was initially applied to the number of rebates a fleet could apply for.
Companies that already applied for rebates can now re-apply for further funding and those who already installed eligible equipment on additional tractors or trailers after receiving their rebate approval letter may also go back to the well now that the cap has been lifted.
