PrintPrint

The CleanBC HDVE Program consists of two components:

  1. A free, half-day pre-requisite course for fleets on fuel management and fuel-efficiency devices, and
  2. Incentives for investing in certified strategies - including a wide range of equipment and devices, as well as driver training - at rebates of up to 50 percent. 

CleanBC HDVE Program Course

Registration is now open. The free, half-day pre-requisite CleanBC HDVE Program Course describes the benefits from using different fuel-saving technologies and practices. It also teaches participants how to develop a Fuel Management Program for any size fleet (from one truck to many), incorporating measures to improve fuel economy based on what will work best for each operation. It will also show how to develop a baseline of fuel consumption and track progress as part of the company’s program.

Note that successful completion of the CleanBC HDVE Program Course is required for BCTA to consider your application.
