Colinas Farming Company is pleased to announce the purchase of an additional five off-road tractors as subsidized by the Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program.

The Air District awarded Colinas Farming Company a Carl Moyer Program Grant for a project to reduce emissions by replacing an additional five pieces of off-road equipment.

Below are photos of our old off-road tractors and the new units purchased.

The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program is an incentive program to provide grants in order to reduce emissions of oxides of nitrogen, particulate matter (PM10), and reactive organic compounds in the State from sources of air pollution, such as heavy-duty and light-duty diesel vehicles, off-road construction equipment, marine vessels and agricultural sources of pollution, by measures such as replacement of engines with cleaner-than-required engines or installation of emission reduction equipment.

Colinas Farming Company would like to thank the Bay Area Air Quality Management District and the California Air Resources Board for the trust they have in us by subsidizing another batch of new tractors to help reduce toxic emissions in the environment. 

We would like to express our thanks to Chris Pedemonte, who has worked hand in hand with board representatives to get the proposal approved. We would also like to thank all our managers and staff who closely monitor the proper use and maintenance of all our tractors.
