please note that we are no longer accepting applications for the 2011-2012 program year.
Manitoba Infrastructure and Transportation (MIT), together with University of Manitoba Transport Institute (UMTI) and the Manitoba Trucking Association (MTA) presents the GrEEEn (Economically and Environmentally Efficient) Trucking incentive program. The program offers incentives to companies/owner-operators that 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
- help the private sector, through financial incentives, implement GHG emission reduction technologies
Participants are required to invest a minimum of $1,500 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.
