Each fleet that submits a completed application will not only be considered for the $20,000 made available through the EPA at this time, but also be placed into a registry of fleets who are interested in pursuing future clean diesel technology installation projects, once adequate funding is made available. As funding does become available to the Diesel Difference from grants, corporate sponsorship donations, and enforcement settlements, its Executive Committee will select projects from this grouping of applications BEFORE requesting additional proposals. Please take this opportunity to think about what types of clean diesel retrofit and/or anti-idling technologies may be appropriate for your fleet, both now and in the coming years.
Please note that all completed applications must be returned to April Birnbaum no later than 5 PM EST on Monday, April 19, 2004. April is available to answer any questions pertaining to this RFP and can provide assistance in the coordination of vendor presentations.
