The Zero Emission Forklift Rule has been in development with CARB and the final rule was published this past week. This rule is phasing out the use of propane forklifts in California and requiring the use of zero-emission engines (such as electric) instead. PineSpire has been following the rule-making closely and keeping our partners up-to-date on the latest changes throughout the process. This week, CARB released the final rule. We’ve summarized major updates for you below.

PineSpire and our own Patrick Dawson were featured in an online article published by the Material Handling Network….
Here’s a snippet of the full article below:
One company providing a nontraditional, but vital kind of support to industrial and commercial companies and municipalities is Durango, Colo.-based PineSpire. They may not provide the forklifts that move massive amounts of product, but they will help you find revenue streams to purchase electric forklifts, yard goats, and yard semis.
PineSpire Co-Founder Patrick Dawson said they specifically provide turnkey services to California companies navigating the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) standards and Oregon firms required to comply with the Clean Fuels Program (CFP).
“It’s a way for them to gain efficiency by letting us take care of what we say is the process from registration to revenue,” Dawson said.
The California and Oregon programs are designed to decrease the carbon intensity of transportation fuels used there and provide an increasing range of low-carbon and renewable alternatives. That applies to everything from city plows to company forklifts.
Among the many layers of the programs are grants and incentives provided to those who meet the standards. Yet many materials-handling firms and other companies likely don’t have the time or staff to undertake what can amount to a full-time job just understanding the nuances of the laws, Dawson said.Read more
