Yard Goats can eat up a lot of time and resources keeping old diesel engines in compliance with tightening air quality regulations.  Valley Air has grant funding currently available to solve that problem.  With Valley Air’s current Truck Replacement Grant, you can apply for grant funding of up to $200,000 for a new all-electric yard goat. 

Moving to a zero-emission all-electric yard goat will get you out of the cycle of air quality mitigation and reporting and back to focusing on your operations. The all-electric vehicles, available from several manufacturers, are easy to operate, lower fuel and maintenance cost, and most importantly create revenue from vehicle charging credits in CARB’s LCFS program every time you use them. PineSpire has many customers already operating these heavy-duty EVs and earning LCFS credits.  

Things to know:

  • Yard Goat funding up to $200,000 (or 45% of total cost) for zero-emission models
  • Must be in Valley Air district to qualify
  • All of your fleet vehicles, including the yard goat to be retired, must currently be in compliance with CARB regulations
  • Learn More about the Truck Replacement program generally, and Yard Goat guidelines
