The following information summarizes programs available to governmental entities:
The Clean Fleet Policy is one strategy to reduce emissions from local fleet operations by providing a framework for efficient, fuel-saving, cost-effective, and low-emitting fleet operations. Adoption of the policy additionally allows entities to be eiligible for regional transportation funding.
Diesel-powered Construction and Mining Equipment contributes approximately 23 tons of nitrogen oxides (NOx) per day in the Dallas-Fort Worth ozone nonattainment area, or approximately eight percent of all ozone-forming NOX in this area.
Electric Vehicles North Texas (EVNT) encourages and supports the transition to electric vehicles through industry partnerships, fleet education, and consumer outreach. Estimates indicate that the electric vehicles and plug-in electric vehicles registered in the DFW area reduce 5 tons of NOX annually.
Engine Off North Texas is your source to find information regarding all things idling in the North Central Texas Region. The information provided is directed for the public, freight industry, and local governments
The High Emitting Vehicles Program conducts regional programs in an effort to reduce emissions from on-road mobile sources. These initiatives focus on public awareness and enforcement of emissions standards.
The mission of the North Central Texas Clean School Bus Program is to reduce emissions from school bus fleets and improve air quality in the DFW region. Improving air quality will help the region attain the federal air quality standards as well as reduce health impacts associated with poor air quality.
Go Solar Texas: To increase deployment of solar across Texas, the NCTCOG has worked to compile key resources for Texans interested in learning more about going solar, and developed Texas-specific resources on best management practices for local governments. This work has been developed in part through support from the Texas State Energy Conservation Office (SECO) and U.S. Department of Energy’s Solar Ready II program.
The Texas Emissions Reduction Plan program, established by the Texas legislature in 2001, is a comprehensive set of incentive programs aimed at improving air quality in Texas by reducing emissions of oxides of nitrogen (NOx) from both on-road and non-road high-emitting internal combustion engines.
