Engine Ban Oct 25
I am still trying to wrap my arms around the specific nature of what's included in it. According to carb statistics, approximately 11 percent of the sixteen point seven million small engines in California are in the construction and farm industries. And so we, you know, trying to specifically figure out where those are. But my first guess is is that it's predominantly going to be the generators.
Agricultural pumps are under a different classification.
Those are controlled by the air district. Those are the stationary engines, but the ones utilize for pumps are going to be definitely under a different category.
There will be different dates on different engine types.
There is a slight delay on the small generators. Lawn and garden equipment has to play or has to be replaced by 2024, and they gave till 2028 for the smaller generators. And the reason being is that there's no alternative at this current time. When it comes to small generator use on the farm, I mean, that's utilized for many people on a daily basis, and there's not currently some type of replacement for how you're going to generate that electrical need in a rural type of environment.
