Grants to Replace Aging Diesel Engines (GRADE)

In 2007, Mecklenburg County Air Quality initiated an air pollution control program called  Grants to Replace Aging Diesel Engines or GRADE.  GRADE is designed to reduce oxides of nitrogen (NOx), an ozone forming air pollutant, by providing businesses and organizations funding incentives to replace or repower heavy-duty non-road equipment with newer, cleaner, less polluting engines. 

Since 2007, GRADE has funded 283 projects and awarded $5.13 million.  These projects have reduced 432 tons of ozone-forming NOx in the Charlotte region.  Watch the award-winning GRADE video for more information.
