In November 2003, the Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) filed an application with the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District (SMAQMD) for Mobile Emission Reduction Credits (MERC's) for the emission reductions resulting from SMUD's electric forklift incentive pilot program. This program helps eligible SMUD customers purchase electric forklifts, instead of Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) powered models. As of this date (December 2005), no credits have been received, although the application was approved in December 2004. This paper provides an overview of the application process, as well as a chronology of events during the past 2 years. SMUD had previously attempted to obtain credits in the early 1990's for a natural gas bus replacement program, using a similar process, but also came up empty after expending significant resources.
