Sign Up for January! CleanBC HDVE Program Course

Posted on Mon, 2020-11-23 16:37

BCTA has added five new webinar dates and two potential in-person sessions in January 2021 of our CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program Course, so that more carriers can qualify to apply for the generous Program Incentives. Applications for a share of $1.4 million in rebates open January 25, 2021.

These half-day sessions explain the HDVE Program and the equipment covered. It’s a four-hour commitment, covering fuel-efficient equipment and driving practices that will assist in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from our industry in BC.

If you like what you hear, you can apply for Incentives from $2,000 to $7,000 for add-ons and installation, or up to $15,000 for a new CNG/LNG tractor. Combined, you can apply for rebates of up to $15,000 per vehicle and $100,000 per fleet—see the list of equipment verified for the HDVE Program right here.

The CleanBC HDVE Program course is a pre-requisite to apply for a list of qualified equipment. Once you’ve successfully completed the course, you are eligible to apply to incentives from January 25 to February 5, 2021. BCTA will review all applications to ensure incentives are distributed equitably among BC regions, based on the locations of companies applying.

Please see the course dates newly scheduled for January 2021. Join us if you:

  • Have one or more heavy-duty commercial vehicles in your fleet, licensed and insured for BC, conduct business in BC, and have a terminal located in BC, owner-operators included.
  • Are a BCTA member OR not—all welcome.
  • Have not yet purchased fuel-efficient equipment. Incentives are for new equipment only (approval is required before purchase/installation).
  • Are ready to invest in equipment with the help of these incentives, to experience improved efficiency and reduced greenhouse gas emissions over time. Our course includes details on developing a Fuel Management Program to assist you.

We look forward to your participation and assistance as a member of BC’s fleet in reducing GHG emissions in our province.
