The Ohio Environmental Protection Agency recently awarded Miller Boat Line, Put-in-Bay, Ohio, a $239,339 grant to cover approximately 40% of the replacement cost for seven (model year 1982-1996) diesel generator sets with Northern Lights M50T13L generators on four ferries.

The Ohio EPA estimates that this project will result in a 43.3% annual reduction in NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions and 66.1% reduction in PM 2.5 (particle pollution) emissions. This grant will be supported with $98,347 in U.S. EPA DERA (Diesel Emissions Reductions Act) funds awarded to the Ohio EPA, matched with $140,992 from the VW Diesel Mitigation Trust, and the Miller Boat Line’s 60% cost share ($359,009).
