Construction Equipment Guide


The Kentucky Association of General Contractors (AGC) will receive a $50,000 Southeast Diesel Collaborative grant to implement the Kentucky Clean Diesel Construction Program. The grant provides funding to encourage the use of cleaner equipment by the construction industry statewide.

This grant is the first in the nation awarded to a state AGC for a clean diesel construction project and the first awarded under the Southeast Diesel Collaborative partnership.

The Southeast Diesel Collaborative is part of EPA’s National Clean Diesel Campaign, a program combining regulatory measures with voluntary initiatives to reduce the pollution emitted from diesel engines across the country. The goal of the Southeast Diesel Collaborative is to improve air quality by encouraging the use of clean, renewable energy and by reducing diesel emissions from existing engines and equipment from the agriculture, heavy construction and on-road sectors.
