Project Title & Description
ARRA National Clean Diesel Program-CSS
This assistance agreement provides funding to Cascade Sierra Solutions under the American Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009. This project will provide emissions control solutions for over-the-road diesel trucks. The funding will be used to partially pay for the installation of 51 diesel particulate filters (DPFs) and 105 auxiliary power units (APUs) on over-the-road trucks. Individual truck owners will be responsible for the remaining cost shares. This project will provide air quality benefits and fuel savings throughout Region 8. An estimated 137 jobs will be created or preserved, including one job at Cascade Sierra Solutions, 24 manufacturing jobs, 7 installation jobs and 105 truck driver jobs preserved due to fuel savings from the APUs.
