C3 Encourages Alberta Commercial Vehicle Owners To Access Government Rebates Before Year End

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 28, 2011) - Alberta commercial vehicle owners have until year end to access tens of thousands of dollars in provincial rebates for installing aerodynamic and fuel-efficient technologies that will cut operating costs and curb greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The commercial vehicle rebate program, named Trucks of Tomorrow, was introduced in May 2010 to optimize fleet performance and reduce emissions, and is administered by C3.

To date, C3 has processed 1,300 rebates totalling more than $600,000. C3 estimates that equipment installed through the program has led to 5.6 million litres of annual fuel savings and the avoidance of 15,300 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions.

Under the program, the maximum rebate available per company is $60,000. To qualify, participants must install their equipment and submit their claims on or before December 31, 2011.

Interested parties can learn more and access applications by visiting the commercial trucking website at www.trucksoftomorrow.com. Or they can call C3 at 1-888-537-7202.
