The Green Operator program has replaced over 400 trucks with older engine model years with 2007 and newer trucks that have cleaner EPA approved engine technologies.  This has been a great success.  For more information on replacement assistance up to $20,000, visit our Replacements page.


The Port of Virginia Green Operator retrofit option is the oldest advantage offered.   The best candidates for a retrofit device are trucks whose owners are looking to bring their emissions up to 2007 EPA standard.   More information and application is available at our Retrofits page.

Request for Decals

The Port of Virginia now offers decals for new or clean trucks that meet 2007 EPA standards that were not purchased or retrofitted under the Green Operator Program.  Visit our Request for Decal page.
