Project Title & Description
FY14 Vermont Clean Diesel Program
For FY2014, the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) proposes to continue its Clean Diesel Grant Program to further improve air quality and protect public health by
1) providing technical and financial assistance to a Vermont-based railway partner to equip diesel locomotive engines with EPA-verified idle reduction technology,
2) continuing a demonstration project to equip hospital facilities with verified idle reduction technology for emergency response vehicles, and
3) providing technical and financial assistance to Vermont school districts in the early replacement of existing school buses with new buses equipped with state-of-the-art emissions control systems and idling reduction technology.
