I-5 Truck Idle Reduction Rebate Project

Location: I-5 corridor throughout Washington, Oregon, and California

EPA is providing a $100,000 grant to the Oregon Department of Energy, with $40,000 in matching funds. This project will install idle reduction technology on 60-100 trucks in Oregon that travel along the I-5 Corridor to reduce harmful diesel emissions and reduce fuel consumption. The project will complement other projects, such as Oregon Diesel Solutions, to develop the necessary infrastructure at rest stops, terminals and transfer stations, to significantly reduce unnecessary idling along the West Coast. This project will reduce an estimated 80 tons of nitrogen oxide, 2.4 tons of particulate matter and 5,640 tons of carbon dioxide over a five-year period.
