The Carbon Offset Aggregation Co-op is set to begin its fuel tracking program this weekend.
Co-op CEO George Stedeford Says they are beginning active installation of trackers in the equipment of a forestry harvesting contractor in Vanderhoof.
“We put some non-intrusive equipment into the machines to assist in reducing unnecessary idling, plus we put a modem in that captures data that helps us to identify any behaviours from the drivers or operators that might be causing excess fuel usage and then we’re able to give some feedback to them.”
Stedeford says the Co-op’s current membership accounts for about 55 million litres of diesel consumption, mainly in the forestry and transportation sectors. He expects interest to continue to increase with the start of installs.
In addition to helping its members reduce their fuel consumption, the Co-op will sell carbon offsets resulting from any reductions.
