Are you looking for tips on how to improve fuel efficiency, reduce your company’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, reduce your operating costs, or increase your profit margins? How about all four?
BCTA, in partnership with the BC Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, has developed the CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program Course covering basic techniques that drivers or the entire company can apply, to make your fleet more fuel efficient, green, profitable and safe.
This one-day course will teach you how to develop a Fuel Management Program for any size of fleet, incorporating measures to improve fuel economy based on what will work best for your operation. Whether it is implementing efficient driving techniques, a better vehicle maintenance program, installing aerodynamic devices, utilizing wide tires or reducing idling time, the strategies covered in this course provide many options for reducing what is often the number one operating cost for fleets. It will also show you how to develop a baseline of your fuel consumption and measure progress as you implement your Fuel Management Program.
Courses are scheduled on November 26, December 3 and December 4 at the BCTA training room in Langley and on December 10 in Kamloops (location TBA). Additional sessions are planned for January and February in Langley and Prince George.
The CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program Course is a requirement for any company to apply for CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program Incentives, which offer rebates on the purchase and installation of qualifying fuel-saving equipment. Incentives are available for up to $10,000 per vehicle or $100,000 per fleet. Both the course and the incentives are part of the CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program, which is administered by BCTA.
To be eligible to participate in this CleanBC Heavy-duty Vehicle Efficiency Program, you must have one or more heavy-duty commercial vehicles in your fleet (a vehicle with a gross vehicle weight greater than 11,794 kg) that is licensed and insured to operate in British Columbia, conducts business in British Columbia, and has a terminal located in British Columbia.
