Cummins, Inc., supplier of the Cummins ComfortGuard APU and Onan brand mobile generators, is also supplying free information to companies considering purchasing an idling-reduction system. Their latest resource is a 12-pg guide to auxiliary power unit (APU) grants, loans and tax credits, provided in an electronic file format.
The free guide, called the “Truckers Guide to APU Financing,” is designed to make it easier for fleet owners and drivers to find out which states currently offer assistance and/or incentives for the purchase, installation and use of an APU system.
While there are other resources for some of this information, chasing down state- and/or local programs can be time consuming. This document is designed to be a more concise reference. Go to www.cumminscomfortguard.com and click on the “APU financing” link in the menu that appears in the box on the center of the page. The PDF file can be downloaded from the financing site.
