Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation (MIT), together with the University of Manitoba Transport Institute (UMTI) and the Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) presents the GrEEEn (Economically and Environmentally Efficient) Trucking incentive program. Re-introduced for the Fall of 2010, the program offers incentives to companies/owner-operators to install various technological improvements.
The key objectives of the GrEEEn Trucking program are to further demonstrate Provincial commitment/leadership in promoting technology and innovation as a way to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the freight transportation sector and help the private sector, through financial incentives, implement GHG emission reduction technologies.
Participants are required to invest a minimum of $2,000 in technologies to be eligible for rebates. These rebates range from 15 per cent up to 25 per cent (maximum $2,500 per unit) of the company’s capital investment.
The GrEEEn Trucking program offers a flexible way for Manitoba’s trucking industry to combine technologies, enhance efficiency and reduce GHG emissions. An energy efficient trucking industry is more competitive, supports employment growth and contributes to a healthy provincial economy.
**THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS NOVEMBER 30, 2010 HOWEVER THE PROGRAM WILL END EALIER IF THE ALOCATED FUNDS ARE EXPENDED.
