    Port of Los Angeles expands Marina Engine Exchange Program

    In an ongoing effort to improve the air and water quality of San Pedro Bay, the Port of Los Angeles has made additional funding available for its Marina Engine Exchange Program, incentivizing boat owners to replace their older, high-polluting outboard motors with California Air Resources Board (CARB)-certified, “threestar”/ultra-low emission-rated engines (up to 10 horsepower), said in the port's press release.

    The Port of Los Angeles is offering boat owners 75 percent of the total cost (up to $2,000) to replace old outboard motors with new motors, which includes purchase price, labor for replacement, and recycling of the old motor. New motors meet CARB’s most recent exhaust emission standards and produce 65 percent fewer emissions than 2001 model year engines.

    Since the Port began offering this program in 2012, nearly 30 outboard motors have received funding, resulting in the reduction of approximately 3,300 pounds of hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen annually.

    In order to qualify, an applicant’s boat must have an operational, two-stroke outboard motor no greater than 10 horsepower and be located in a Port of Los Angeles marina. Upon engine replacement, the boat must remain in a Port of Los Angeles marina for at least one year.

    The Port of Los Angeles is America’s premier port and has a strong commitment to developing innovative strategic and sustainable operations that benefit the economy as well as the quality of life for the region and the nation it serves. As the leading seaport in North America in terms of shipping container volume and cargo value, the Port generates more than 830,000 regional jobs and $35 billion in annual wages and tax revenues. The Port of Los Angeles – A cleaner port.  A brighter future.
